Two years ago, I attended my first Greenbuild, the annual conference and exhibition hosted by the US Green Building Council, in Boston, Massachusetts. Frankly, it was a bit uncomfortable and I felt like an outsider. By my count, only four attorneys were present among the thousands of attendees. But the discussion of green building legal issues has come a long way in two short years.
I am honored to have been chosen as one of nine attorneys to participate in the inaugural Greenbuild Legal Forum. On November 18, 2010, from 8:30 to 11:00 am, three panels of attorneys will discuss the legal issues facing the green building industry. I will be on a panel with my esteemed colleagues, Shari Shapiro and Stephen Del Percio. We have been tasked to answer the following question:
”What’s the next big challenge in green building law?”
I will be preparing my materials for the event soon so let me ask you:
What is the next big challenge in green building law?
