The U.S. Green Building Council's New Jersey Chapter is seeking an executive director to fill the vacancy created by the death of Florence Block in September. Here's how the non-profit describes itself:
The USGBC NJ is a non-profit organization focused solely on advancing green building and sustainable communities. The mission of USGBC NJ is to transform NJ’s built environment to become ecologically sustainable, profitable, and healthy. We accomplish our mission through education, advocacy, and collaboration.
USGBC NJ is at the forefront of changing the way buildings in our state are designed, built and operated.
