"2020 has not exactly been the year any of us expected, but we continue to advance our mission to advocate for greener, better buildings because Green Buildings Are Better - for people, for the planet, and for our pocket books! Please join us by supporting our work this year. We can't get there without each of you," says USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Chair, Board of Directors Angela A. Moore of the Missouri Historical Society.

As a community of building industry professionals, we have a large role to play in shaping a healthy, safe, equitable and sustainable future for all. It's no small task, but together we are taking on these challenges. And as 2020 Award of Excellence recipient from the U.S. Green Building Council for Raising the Standard Angela Moore stated, we cannot get there without each of you. Thank you!
