"Organizing is what you do before you do something so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up." --A.A. Milne
There are few things more difficult than organizing a green building effort: out-of-date building codes, conflicting community priorities, arcane state laws, politics, budget constraints, and old habits are just a few of the obstructions one must overcome. That's why I was thrilled to hear from Lena Lucas, founder of My Home Green Pages and Green Business Network in Indianapolis, about the event she is organizing on June 11th to bring several of the key players in Indiana to the table for a discussion of green building. Here are the details:
Location: Indianapolis Columbia Club
Registration fee: Early bird - $25 till May 15th; $35 online preregister; $40 at the door (includes light dinner catering).

In Lena's words: "We are bringing together a panel of governmental officials from the Indiana office of energy, Indiana Housing & Community development authority (IHCDA), representatives from non-profit organizations such as the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance and Central Indiana Clean Cities Alliance to inform the local business community about available stimulus funds for Indiana weatherization and energy efficiency programs. This meeting is very important and will translate into new green jobs for local green construction professionals."
I plan to register for this myself (great that it's after business hours) and hope all green building professionals that want a place at the table will also register. Thanks to Lena for organizing this emportant effort.
