What is LEED?
Set for April 16-18, 2015 at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine, the 7th annual event will unite a diverse audience from the biomass fuel, supply chain, developer, manufacturer, and government sectors to break barriers and ground for biomass thermal and combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
From the expo floor, to panel discussions, to technical workshops for engineers, the refreshed and fast-paced interactive program will emphasize practical learning and real project case studies.
Since the Northeast Biomass Heating Expo & Conference was launched in 2009, over 1,500 individual attendees and 400 different businesses, agencies and organizations have attended one of America’s fastest growing biomass energy conferences.

Partner with local community colleges through Community Green
The Center for Green Schools recently launched Community Green, a program to support community colleges in bringing green building training and education opportunities to their campuses. Through this program USGBC is offering all public two-year institutions a first free year of USGBC membership, which now includes a revised benefits package created specifically with the college in mind. Please spread the word about this exciting opportunity to the community colleges in your area and to contact Vanessa Santos to get involved. We are seeking chapter leaders who are able to offer their expertise as guest speakers and/or advisors for college members as they work to develop green building courses and training opportunities, so please contact Vanessa if you're interested.
