Work Groups may also hold meetings as part of the drafting process. Meetings via web-conferencing are also anticipated.

    I am very interested in joining the committee, particularly the international board. I recently took the 2 day United States Green Building Council course and am continuing to study. I find the subject fascinating and imperative.
