Mahesh Ramanujam shares thoughts on USGBC's support of Houston.

My thoughts and prayers are with those in Texas—especially our USGBC staff, volunteers, their families and our members.

As a community of staff, volunteers and members all across the globe, we are all impacted as an organization when something as devastating as Hurricane Harvey takes place. The images of the storm and those affected by it remind us all how vulnerable we are when a natural disaster of this magnitude strikes. Please keep those in the greater Houston region in your thoughts and prayers as they work to repair and reclaim their homes, offices, schools, places of worship, and other critical buildings.

Sadly, Hurricane Harvey once again reminds us our work on resilient cities is at a critical juncture and represents an unprecedented opportunity to scale our work, spread our mission, and provide replicable models of resiliency that can be used in the United States and across the globe.

The road to complete recovery in the greater Houston region will be long, and please know that I am committed to doing everything we can as an organization to support that.

We are all in!
