USGBC Lunch & Learn: Recapping the Top Sustainability Topics of GSCE x IMPACT

Wednesday, May 29 | 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. | No More Empty Cups

The annual IMPACT conference is the leading event for sustainable development in the Midwest, featuring the latest updates for LEED, Arc, and green building. This year, IMPACT was co-located in Saint Paul, MN with Green Schools Conference & Expo (GSCE), which is the only national event to bring together all the players involved in making green schools a reality. We understand that not everyone was able to attend, so we are bringing the energy and education home.

Join us to hear from three local sustainability leaders who presented at IMPACT and will be sharing their take-aways:
Sarah Gudeman, Morrissey Engineering
Brittney Albin, Lincoln Public Schools
Heather Hughes, DLR Group

Please gather at 11:45am. Lunch will be served. The presentation will begin promptly at 12pm.
