How will you support your community during Earth Month?
You can make a huge impact on the environment - and this is the month to let your voice be heard.

We're halfway through Earth Month, and there are still plenty of ways that you can contribute to making a difference in your community. 

This Saturday (4/22) is the March for Science, and it's a great way to stand alongside those from other disciplines who are aiming to support their field. 

Next Saturday (4/29) is Boston People's Climate March, and we're going to have our own table there. We're looking for volunteers to help out! Please sign up via Eventbrite, and be on the look out for a spreadsheet that will let you choose the time(s) best for you to staff the table.

We have a lot going on over the next two months that we're super excited about! Tomorrow is our next LEED Green Associate exam prep course, then on Thursday, we have an Introduction to the WELL Building Standard and you will get the SparkNotes version of an awesome certification process.

Save the date! We have a few more big events in the near future. May 25th will be our next Greenbuild Mixer - and it will also be Grey Lee's send-off party. Register now to reserve early-bird ticket pricing. 

Stay tuned for more information on this year's Green Building Showcase on June 15th! It's the 10th anniversary, so it'll be bigger than ever. This year, it's going to be at Northeastern's ISEC Building, and  it's quite an awesome spot.

Please consider becoming a member of our Chapter as well. Your support helps us grow our mission, ranging from our advocacy campaigns, to supporting educational programs. 

I hope to see you soon!
