Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

This year as part of USGBC NJ’s Green Hospitality Industry initiative we are working with our Board of Directors and Hospitality Committee on a very exciting project to Green the Superbowl. USGBC NJ together with NJ Travel & Tourism, the NJ Department of En- vironmental Protection, NJ Meadowlands Commission, and Wyndham Worldwide are embarking on this initiative, which will have an enormous economic and public relations impact for the State of NJ. In December of 2013 we will hold a roll out event focusing on Green Superbowl/ Green Hospitality and featuring an educational component and networking opportunities, to be held in the Meadowlands area.
