USGBC Texas Announces 2019 Regional Leaders

Thursday, December 13, 2018 12:29 PM | Jonathan Kraatz (Administrator)

The U.S. Green Building Council Texas Chapter (USGBC Texas) recently held its annual election to fill leadership positions in each of the Chapter’s five regions.

“I am excited about this year’s group of leaders elected across the state,” said Scott Gerhardt, chair of the USGBC Texas statewide board of directors.  “They represent many sectors of our industry and bring a lot of energy and expertise to helping the Chapter meet our mission.”

USGBC Texas is a 501c(3) organization dedicated to green building in the state of Texas. It is the only nonprofit green building coalition in Texas that fosters the advancement of sustainability and green building to promote healthy buildings, people, and communities.

Transform the way buildings, homes, and communities are designed, built, maintained, and operated in Texas through outreach, education, advocacy, and partnerships, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life in Texas.

USGBC Texas comprises diverse stakeholders, including building industry professionals, educators, lawmakers, and community members. From our partnerships with industry and trade associations to our networking and educational events, we connect them in conversations about real solutions.

In each of the Chapter’s five regions, the Regional Council members – along with the statewide board of directors – set the direction for the Chapter’s day-to-day advocacy, outreach, and education programs.  To get involved with your local region and some of the 100+ events across Texas each year, please visit the Chapter’s volunteer page: https://usgbctexas.org/VolunteerWithUs
