The time has come! 2019 marks the 12th year that USGBC has hosted Rocky Mountain Green —the largest green building event in the Mountain region. By bringing together various stakeholders, superb educational sessions and inspiring speakers, Rocky Mountain Green actively engages the green building industry to think above and beyond the standard and take action to push sustainability practices into the future.
This two-day conference hosts offsite workshops and activities, as well as the traditional conference with keynote speakers, breakout sessions and exhibitors. More than 500 people are expected to attend this year’s event.
Rocky Mountain Green program priorities
The Rocky Mountain Green Program Selection Committee is seeking presentations that inspire attendees into action while focusing on programs that advance our mission and enhance the knowledge of our members and interested parties about design, construction and operational practices, promote green building best practices and the LEED v4, Arc, SITES, TRUE, Parksmart, PEER, or GRESB certification processes. We also seek to expand an understanding of the importance of healthy, sustainable buildings and communities to a broader audience. This year, the committee is seeking cutting-edge strategies, stories of community resilience and equitable development, and technical content for our more seasoned green building practitioners.
