Favorite part about working for USGBC?

The opportunity to see the ways that USGBC operates as a eco-system. Ideas are created regarding how buildings shall be built and operated. Those ideas are then manifested in projects; credentials; academic studies; terminology; professional networks; and markets. Working from my vantage point reveals powerful connections among those manifestations.

Most of my days are focused on a unique kind of knowledge management. They involve projects which will: promote the recognition and application of continuing education; add layers to our business analytics efforts; and channel corporate knowledge into new products. My favorite business tool is MS Access.
