Emerging Professionals Happy Hour


Green Building Alliance’s Emerging Professionals (EPs) are the energetic and dynamic leaders of tomorrow’s green building movement. GBA’s Emerging Professionals committee enables individuals early in their sustainability careers to be a force for progress within their communities by providing a forum for networking and education.

Emerging Professionals are in the early stage of their careers and interested in or already working in the green building industry (generally under 35 years of age). Graduate students are encouraged to become involved, while undergraduate students are encouraged to engage with existing green building and sustainability networks at their college or university.

Whether you’re already a GBA Emerging Professional or if you’re interested in joining the group, join us for this casual happy hour where you can meet new friends and professional connections, and learn how you can get involved with GBA. Registration is free (but please register in advance) and participants purchase their own food and drinks.

CANCELLED: Creating Collaborative Project Teams

This event has been cancelled and will be re-scheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience!


Join Green Building Alliance for a deep dive into creating collaborative project teams for high-performance buildings. Speakers from the design and construction fields will share insights and lessons learned about why collaboration is necessary for achieving health and sustainability goals; tips and qualities that contribute to collaboration; and real-life examples. Participants will also engage in discussions and activities that will help foster collaboration on future projects.


This event has been designed for those working in architecture, construction, or engineering and can also be beneficial to project managers and building owners or operators. If you are currently working on a high-performance building project and would like to attend with other members of your project team, please inquire about a group registration.
