In this difficult economy, schools and universities are being forced to further cut all aspects of operations, with many curtailing continuing education, travel and more. However, the need for knowledge and insight into a complex and changing education landscape is vital for success, and the benefits of knowledge-building and peer networking become even more important.
Understanding this, American School & University has brought together industry experts and thought leaders in education facilities, business and operations to help you gain the valuable knowledge and insight you need to stay ahead of the curve. "GREEN School & University Virtual Conference & Expo" is a FREE, day-long event that you and your staff can attend from the comfort of your office or conference room — on your schedule and at no cost.
Held on Wednesday, June 24, the groundbreaking event offers attendees numerous educational webinar sessions, including "Maximizing Learning and Savings by Going Green;" "Trends in Green Design and Construction;" "How to Make the Stimulus Work for You;" "Green Cleaning: How to Turn Your Facilities Into Healthier, More Productive Environments;" and "Renewable Energy Options for Education Institutions."
In addition to the series of one-hour webinars, attendees can participate in post-conference chats with editors, presenters and fellow professionals; visit knowledgeable vendors for the latest in sustainable products and services; stop by the resource center to download white papers, presentations and other data; post new topics on the message boards; and much more — all from a computer.
The event has the support and participation of the leading organizations in the education, architectural and green communities — and all will be available for questions and visits during the day — including AASHE, ASBO, CHPS, HSC, NCEF, NSPMA, SCUP and USGBC.
I hope to "see" you at this groundbreaking event. Learn more and register for free at: http://asumag.com/GreenVirtualConferenceOverview.html
