USGBC-L.A. Chapter's 7th Annual Green Gala to Feature Renowned International Author, Speaker Jason McLennan as Keynote Speaker
The Los Angeles Chapter of the nonprofit USGBC will launch its Sustainable Innovation Awards this year during the chapter's 7th Annual Green Gala on Thursday, November 3.
The Green Gala has become recognized throughout the region as the single largest annual vehicle for communication, celebration and bridge-building among those who think, act, design and build greener throughout the County of Los Angeles and its metropolitan areas.
The significance of this year's Gala is further cemented in the selection of the Keynote Speaker, Jason McLennan. Author of the Living Building Challenge (click here to read Building Design+Construction's on Living Buildings), international speaker and CEO of the Cascadia Green Building Council. He is considered one of the founders of the green design movement in the U.S. Never one to shy away from any topic, he credits USGBC for laying the original groundwork in identifying and encouraging green design, while simultaneously challenging and inspiring the organization to continually push the envelope in the advancement of sustainable design and construction. From his unique perspective, McLennan will address the Gala's theme of "Branching Out" and how that concept is key to the Chapter's growth and empowerment as it heads into its second decade.
