Look what’s going on in Denver this week!
November 11-17, 2006 – The 2006 US Green Building Council Conference at the Denver Convention Center
This is an international conference spread over the week. Plus, there are three days of educational programming, workshops and networking. You can learn about the leading edge of the building and construction industry, including the latest updates and expansions of the LEED Green Building Rating System. Here is the schedule for the event. (I found this on the US Green Building Council Web site. )The price is high, though. Regular $950, so definitely not going this year. But something to think about in the future.
So, not knowing what the LEED Green Building Rating System is, I checked out the US Green Building Council Web site and found out the LEED Green Building Rating System is the national benchmark for high performance green building.
The US Green Building Council is a nonprofit organization, with a community of more than 6,900 organizations from every sector of the building marketplace. There is a lot of information on the site for building professionals to design, build, and operate high performance green buildings. This definitely appears to be an industry-sort of guild but there is quite a bit of educational information. So, if you are interested in a green career this may be a good place to start researching.
