cess of making greener homes. We reorganized with a goal of reaching out to the general public to help promote the process of building Green into their homes. Throughout 2014 our committee will endeavor to educate the public and collabo- rate with other environmentally friendly groups where our synergies can best be utilized.

We will not be constrained by location and look forward to bringing a greater awareness of LEED to the central and southern portions of our state. If you would like to know more about the Residential Green Builders Committee, or USGBC NJ in general, feel free to contact executive director Florence Block at (973) 290-0013 or executivedirector@usgbcnj.org.
