Green Building Council to host networking shindig June 27

A press release from the The Western North Carolina Green Building Council (WNCGBC) announcing its Annual Networking Extravaganza:

The WNCGBC Extravaganza is on Thursday, June 27, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Highland Brewery. This annual event recognizes the past years accomplishments of the WNCGBC and promotes green building practices in Western North Carolina. Local businesses and members of the 2013 Green Building Directory will be showcased.

The party is open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5.00 recommended to benefit this local non-profit. Highland Brewing Company has offered to donate a portion of the proceeds from the evening to the WNCGBC. The 2012 event had approximately 300 attendees, and more are expected this year.

The 2012 WNCGBC accomplishments include the launch of the Green Built NC and Green Gauge programs. Green Built NC has replaced the statewide program once known as the NC HealthyBuilt Home Program. This program has certified 715 homes to date with more than 150 currently in progress in Western North Carolina. WNCGBC is also a Provider of the national, LEED-Homes program and has certified 46 homes with 135 more registered in the Southeast region.

WNCGBC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote environmentally sustainable and health-conscious building practices through community education. One of its primary outreach projects is the WNC Green Building Directory/Green Homes & Living Guide, which was first published in 2002 and this year distributed 25,000 copies of the 9th edition!
