Weifield is excited to announce that our Vice President of Preconstruction, Jim Dent, has been appointed to a two-year term on the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Colorado Local Market Leadership Advisory Board!
The Local Market Leadership Advisory Board serves as the Rocky Mountain region’s primary volunteer leadership voice for USGBC and represents a diversity of locally-based leaders who advise on strategic and tactical activities implemented as part of USGBC’s global work plan. This leadership group works collaboratively within a larger network of Market Leadership Advisory Boards in order to develop and implement integrative, consistent, and effective local work plans in all strategic markets – and help achieve success for the USGBC Community which is defined as a minimum of 20% growth in regions, sectors, products, and target markets.
“The USGBC’s mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated – enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life,” said Jim. “This mission statement aligns perfectly with my personal values; I will do everything possible to promote the mission of the USGBC as a board member.”
USGBC helps advance buildings and communities in the Rocky Mountain region that regenerate and sustain the health and vitality of all life within a generation. USGBC Colorado comprises a Market Leadership Advisory Board, several committees, and four branches – Northern, Southern, Metropolitan, and Roaring Fork — that host events, gather stakeholders, and work on region-specific issues.
