I hope you were one of the more than 1,500 fellow professionals registered for last month's unprecedented GREEN School & University Virtual Conference & Expo. Attendees from 47 states and 13 countries participated in the free, day-long event dedicated to how to incorporate green/sustainable practices in our nation's education institutions.
The groundbreaking event garnered the support and participation of the leading organizations in the education, architectural and green communities, including the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS), National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities (NCEF), Healthy Schools Campaign (HSC), Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), National School Plant Management Association (NSPMA), Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) and Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
Like an on-site conference, the GREEN School & University event enabled registrants to attend industry-leading education sessions with live Q&A; visit an exhibit hall to interact with vendors; access a resource center to download white papers, presentations, videos, podcasts and more; and enter a communications center to network with peers, presenters and exhibitors.
In this challenging economy, a virtual event such as GREEN School & University is an attractive vehicle for both attendees and sponsors, as it eliminates travel expenses normally associated with an industry conference and trade show; allows entire staffs to attend a series of educational sessions they wouldn't normally be able to attend because of cost, time constraints and/or scheduling conflicts; and brings together thought leaders on a topic of increasing importance and interest — ensuring superior educational benefits and networking opportunities.
If you missed out, don't fret: The event is available On Demand. Make sure you and your staff benefit from this unique opportunity by attending the session or sessions of your choice today.
