USGBC Texas Gulf Coast Chapter

May 2016

Letter from the Chair: 

My daytime occupation affords me opportunities to participate in discussions and projects that parallel my sustainability passions.  For that I am truly thankful.  I realize that this is not the case for many people.  Yet every day I meet individuals, right here in Houston, who find a way to make a difference, even after completing a forty or fifty hour work week at a “job”.  It is humbling and inspiring to have the privilege to work alongside these talented, compassionate and dedicated citizens.
