USGBC Texas Gulf Coast Chapter

January 2016

Letter from the Chair

It is a privilege and an honor to assume the position of Chair - USGBC - Texas Gulf Coast Region for 2016.  I am excited about the opportunities available to us in this vibrant Region.  We have world class professionals, working diligently to provide their clients with the best.  Developers, Owners, Designers, Contractors, Facility Operators, Vendors, and City and Regional Planners are all working hard to bring to fruition their vision of what a Sustainable future should be.  This year the Texas Gulf Coast Regional Council will focus on spotlighting that success.  There will be lots of stats and shiny things to look at, but the focus will always return to our celebration of the commitment, the ingenuity and the passion that has made Texas a world leader.  Watch this newsletter for opportunities to discover how your gifts and passion might help in the continuation of our Region’s success.

Thank you again for the opportunity to serve you in 2016!

David MacLean
