“Green Building Focus” Expo in July + Ed Begley, Jr. comes to town

8 July 2009

This just in from Catalyst, the “hip to be civic” crowd:

The Green Building Focus Expo is July 28, 29 and 30 at the BJCC starting at 7:30 each morning. It is a forum that has been done in South Africa and worldwide and seeks to create Birmingham as a “green hub” for sustainable building products and services. Speakers such as Ed Begley, Jr., Charles Kibert, Karan Grover, Dominic Sims and many other thought leaders and experts will provide information on the increasing movement for green building. By attending the event you will have the opportunity to take the “Learning to LEED” class and have the opportunity to become LEED certified. With the many resources surrounding Birmingham’s 100 mile radius, we are an ideal location for this event as well as being the forefront for the future green building movement.

Catalyst will be supporting this event by promoting and providing volunteers. Volunteers will gain full access to the event and speakers. We are looking for 10-25 people who would either like to work in registration, ushers, on-site recycling program or event information.

Check out the website for a schedule of events and for more information on this event contact Todd Sims at or Melisa McGregor at Contact Gail Harper Yeilding if you would like to volunteer,

Ed Begley, Jr. will speak on the opening day, July 28th:

“I am honored to have the opportunity to speak to design and construction professionals from across the Southeast. These professionals have the opportunity to affect real change through sustainable building practices, and their interest in doing so is critical to the future of our nation,” said Begley.

    Hey there, this sounds like a really great event. I love that LEED is catching on within the community. One question, though: Do you all have a Prometric testing center in the area? I believe that is where the LEED Exams are given. Thanks! Good luck with the event!
