Join USGBC Iowa for our annual meeting!

The annual meeting will include a 2016 recap, recognition of LEED achievements and a keynote address from Derek Nelson, Manager of Sustainability, Kum & Go, on the business impacts of pursuing LEED certification.

Learn why the company opted for the LEED Volume certification pathway to implement green building initiatives. This presentation also will cover why companies use LEED, how it helps meet customer satisfaction and how it's helping create a company culture of continuous improvement.
