Just a quick editor’s note (and honestly, a little self-promotion) to let you know I will be a panelist on September 25, 2010 at the 83rd Annual Meeting of the State Bar of California. You don’t have to be an attorney to attend, so please consider this engaging educational event. The Annual Meeting will be held in Monterey, California from September 23 -26. My panel is entitled Sustainable Development: Moving Beyond Green Building Toward Sustainable Building and Master Planning, and I will be joined by Ed Quevedo and Bret Stone of the Paladin Law Group, (a great law firm by the way).
The Annual Meeting promises to be informative, and our panel will address a number of the new developments in laws supporting sustainablity. The keynote speaker this year is Justice Anthony Kennedy, and there are lots of other insightful speakers. Check 0ut the dozens of sessions by clicking the link above!
While we’re discussing conferences, I want to note that West Coast Green 2010 is coming up September 30 – October 2, 2010. Once again, West Coast Green lo0ks to be a fantastic event at the same scenic location on the bay in San Francisco. Last year it was a lot of fun. Note that the early bird discount for West Coast Green ends today, August 20!
Also note, the USGBC’s GreenBuild, November 17-19 in Chicago, IL, has early registration going on, too (until September 10). They have not announced the keynote speaker for GreenBuild, and it will be tough to top Al Gore from last year… who knows…. Regardless of the speakers, I attended last year, and it was a blast (though Gore was a very inspiring speaker). It is still the largest green building conference and expo in the United States (if not the world).
