Ambassadors Committee

The Ambassadors Committee ensures that USGBC (National) and USGBC MA are connected to the region’s sustainability VIPs, cultivates relationships, and delivers sponsorships for Greenbuild and Chapter-related Greenbuild activities (tours, Legacy Project, and special events, such as the Host Chapter Lounge and Host Chapter Party). The Ambassador Committee is lead by Jennifer Taranto of Structure Tone and Cynthia Curtis of JLL as co-chairs.

The Ambassador Committee created the Honorary Host Committee. Through the formation of the Honorary Host Committee, Greenbuild will provide opportunities for local dignitaries, senior government, business, and community leaders to connect with other leaders about issues related to sustainability and the built environment.
