Leadership featured at Cascadia’s September Emerging Professionals Event

KOBPhoto-BookRefining our ability to lead effectively is an important aspect of our professional development and important at any time in our career! This September 22 from 5:30 to 7:30pm please join Kathleen O’Brien, author of EMERGE: A Strategic Leadership Model for the Sustainable Building Community and founder and retired principal of O’Brien & Company in a free-ranging conversation about an approach to leadership that works regardless of title and position and is specifically designed to bring about positive change in and through our built environment. Kathleen is a Cascadia Fellow with over 30 years instigating, advocating, and consulting on the development of green building policies, programs, buildings and communities.

(Print copies of the book will be available for a SPECIAL PRICE: $15 for a single copy; $25 for two.)

Light drinks and snacks will be served. Sign up.
