Louisville Green Scene September 26, 2012
Some experiences are certainly worth repeating. Kentucky USGBC members feel that way about hosting Louisville Green Scene functions at Ramsi’s Café on the World on Bardstown Road. On Wednesday evening, September 26th, 2012 about twenty-five members and visitors dropped by to network and hear chapter updates.
Cliff Ashburner of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs LLP serves as the Chapter Board Chairman.
He reported on the Green Schools Initiative and showed us The Map. It shows the current status of counties in Kentucky regarding their Energy Star, LEED or LEED-Energy Star ratings for schools. It is an inspiring visual, showing at a glance which counties have schools that meet the requirements for the various levels of participation in the program. As Cliff stated, the objective is to “fill up the map” with green.
Chris Head, acting Executive Director of the chapter, announced upcoming events for the next few months. There are many, and he accurately and enthusiastically discussed them, all from memory! They are posted on the chapter website.
Steve Eggers of K. Norman Berry Associates announced the upcoming Advocacy Days in Frankfort, and stressed the opportunity for volunteers to assist with various aspects of this event. Angela Stephens of Stites & Harbison, PLLC provided a membership committee report. She said we are starting a Member Spotlight feature on the website, and she requested volunteer reporters to interview key chapter members and write short articles about them. Emily Ashburn of Paladin, Inc. and Nicole Pavelich of BFMJ Structural Engineers staffed the registration table, welcoming each member and providing guests with information about membership.
