EAST COAST GREEN VIRTUAL 2-DAY CONFERENCE
THURSDAY, JULY 20, 2023
& THURSDAY, JULY 27, 2023
CALL FOR SPEAKERS
AIA-NJ COTE Committee seeks individuals in the AEC industry to speak at this year’s annual East Coast Green Conference on Small and Large Scale sustainability eorts / projects. Now, more than ever, the connection of wellness and our environment has never been more important to understand, communicate, and align in our designs and buildings. The COVID 19 pandemic brought the vulnerability and common ground of our health to the forefront of conversation. We saw air water quality notably improve during the reduced human activity this situation forced us into for our own well-being. There is no doubt, as a result, that human activity has a lasting and substantial impact on our environment. This conference seeks to bring together these stories of the eorts of our design community to create a sustainabile built environment.
We are continuing this year to take this conference virtual in order to better promote sustainability and eliminate the necessity of travel to attend. This allows us to provide opportunities to earn CEUs to our members and aliated organizations. East Coast Green brings together some of the most prominent regional players in
sustainability, to speak on a wide variety of topics on the forefront of design.
This year the conference will be oering two tracks: Small Scale and Large Scale Sustainability. Continuing Education hours will be available for both AIA and we are partnering with Green Globes and USGBC to accommodate oering Continuing Education credits for those organizations as well.
We ask that you please respond by Friday May 12th with Learning Objectives submitted to AIA-NJ by Friday, May 19th. Should you also like to apply for USGBC credits please submit your PowerPoint Slides with speaker notes along with your learning objectives.
