Emerging Green Professionals Team Up with PCRI

January 11, 2012 · by pcriadmin · PCRI

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with the Cascadia Green Building Council’s Emerging Professionals!  In March 2012, the Cascadia Chapter of Emerging Professionals, with generous assistance provided by Green Hammer Construction, will join PCRI for a hands-on volunteer project.

For the project, expected to take place on March 3, 2012, Emerging Professionals volunteers will join PCRI staff and Andrew Morphis, Home Performance Division Manager for Green Hammer, to conduct home performance testing in one of PCRI’s affordable rental homes.  With the information gained from the testing, Emerging Professionals volunteers will implement efficiency upgrades and other refurbishments targeted to improve the efficiency, health and durability of the home.

Want to get involved or learn more?  Join the Emerging Professionals at their monthly meet-up, Tuesday, February 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Portland’s Lucky Lab Beer Hall on NW Quimby.  PCRI staff and Emerging Professionals organizers will be on hand to share details and enroll volunteers.  We’ll also post additional details here on the PCRI News blog and on our events calendar.

PCRI is also excited to announce our alliance as a Community Partner with Cascadia Green Building Council and the International Living Future Institute for their upcoming Living Future 2012 unConference.  PCRI staff will join Living Future organizers for their inaugural event on January 24 at Hopworks Urban Brewery’s innovative “eco-brew” facility.  More information about the unConference can be found at the Cascadia GBC’s website.
