Regardless of whether you are new to the green building industry or a renowned professional, there are three key ways grow your career:
1) expand your network
2) stay current and relevant, and
3) be part of something bigger
Each year, the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) hosts a national conference which attracts close to 1,000 green building industry professionals to learn, network and build actionable solutions to climate change. For three full days, delegates have access to top industry education delivered by experts from around the globe and many networking opportunities. This year, from May 30 to June 1 in beautiful Vancouver, B.C. representatives from all sectors of the industry will gather together and outline how the building sector can contribute to meeting national climate change targets of a 30 per cent reduction by 2030; show how the building sector is providing specific solutions in Canada and abroad; and balance these plans with a holistic approach to buildings and social sustainability as pathways of wider engagement.
