On Thursday the USGBC Massachusetts chapter, along with Climate Action Business Association (CABA), hosted a legislative celebration BBQ. CABA graciously hosted the event at their new headquarters at Old West Church in Boston. There was grilling, cold drinks, yard games, and a great group of people; it doesn’t get much better than that.
Attendees, including state legislators, city officials, advocates, and energy and building industry professionals, came together to celebrate all of the hard work throughout the last legislative session to improve the social, financial, and environmental sustainability of the Commonwealth. Much of the effort was around the energy bill, and we were all anxiously awaiting news of its fate. The bill wasn’t passed before the BBQ, but we were doing some hopeful celebrating.
This was the chapter’s second annual legislative summer BBQ, and the first partnering with a fellow advocacy organization. We hope to continue to partner in this celebration annually, and to keep expanding the network, and support for more green buildings and communities!
