On April 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, NESEA will host a networking reception and tour of the R.W. Kern Center at Hampshire College, led by Wright Builders and other members of the project team. Please join us for what we hope is the first of many NESEA events to introduce our longstanding members and supporters to NESEA’s next generation of emerging professionals.
Completed in August 2016, the Kern Center is one of just a handful of Living Building Challenge projects in Massachusetts, and is serving as a live learning laboratory for its occupants: Hampshire students, faculty and staff. This building has been featured in two of our most popular BuildingEnergy Pro Tours - so if you haven’t yet had the chance to tour it, we hope you’ll register, and stick around afterwards for some great networking.
This event will serve as the kick-off for NESEA’s Valley Gives Day campaign. Valley Gives Day takes place May 2, 2017, and NESEA will be raising money during this one-day online event for the Kate Goldstein Fund for Emerging Professionals so that we can introduce even more new talent into our growing community. It’s urgent that we dramatically increase the number of young people working in the high performance building and energy efficiency arena if we are to take serious steps to mitigate climate change.
The program is free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
