I honestly can’t wait for Greenbuild this week.  Here are a few reasons why.

Sustainable Cities Collective

In addition to publishing Green Building Law Update, I recently became an advisory member of Sustainable Cities Collective (SSC).  SSC is a helpful website because it aggregates articles and blog posts from some of the top green and environmental authors throughout the world.  I am honored to be part of the advisory board with other luminaries like Kaid Benfield and Geoff Wilkinson. 

As part of my new role, I will be writing for SSC this week from Greenbuild.  Look for my posts on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday over on the SSC website.  Additionally, I will be tweeting under the twitter name "Sustaincities".  If you want live updates throughout Greenbuild, feel free to review the SSC twitter feed and let me know what you want to hear about. 

Greenbuild Legal Forum

I have already written about the Greenbuild Legal Forum that I will be participating in on Thursday.  The topic of my short presentation will be LEEDigation.  Feel free to download my LEEDigation white paper (pdf), and let me know what you think.  You can also bet that my co-presenters – Shari Shapiro and Stephen Del Percio – and I will discuss the Gifford v. USGBC lawsuit.  Whether you are an attorney or not, I think the Legal Forum will be extremely valuable and I hope you will consider attending. 

Greenbuild Meetup

Finally, and most importantly, if you are going to be at Greenbuild, I would like to meet you.  An informal meetup has been scheduled for Tuesday, November 16, at 5:30 pm at the Gage (24 South Michigan Avenue).  If you can’t make that meeting, please email me (chris@cheathamconsulting.com) or call or text me (202-553-3181) so we can arrange a separate meeting.  I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
