In January, GFF’s Director of Sustainability, Laura Eder, AIA, LEED AP, GGP was elected to serve a 3-year term for the USGBC North Texas Regional Council. Last year, the Texas Chapter combined its four existing chapters, creating one statewide entity of 5 Regions: Central, North, South, Texas Gulf Coast, and West.
The USGBC Texas Chapter’s mission is to transform the way buildings, homes and communities are designed, built, maintained and operated in Texas. Doing so through outreach, education, advocacy and partnerships, the USGBC helps foster an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous atmosphere. Specifically, the North Texas Region is focused on advocacy and community outreach.
Laura is looking forward to serving on the North Texas Regional Council to help raise the awareness of sustainability in our Region and to create a better built environment.
