Highlights from HBAGC
Chief Executive Officer
Over the last few months, the Regional Green Building Committee has been meeting locally and with key NAHB representatives to decide what, if any, components of the voluntary NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines make sense for our local marketplace. The committee is now at a point where it would like to solicit your input so that the requirements of the large cross section of our membership are taken into account.
We want to know how you think the voluntary NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines and their evolution into standards approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) would work for your business. Visit here to review a copy of the NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines. Then, participate in our ongoing dialogue at our next Regional Green Building Committee meeting on January 11th at 8:30 a.m. here at the HBAGC offices.
