The Threat of COVID-19 and
FGBC Annual Awards Luncheon

Amid ongoing concern about the coronavirus COVID-19, the Florida Green Building Coalition's (FGBC) top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our members.

The Center's for Disease Control and Prevention's Interim Guidance for large events and mass gatherings recommends that for the next eight weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more.

In accordance with those guidelines FGBC has cancelled the Annual Awards Luncheon scheduled for Tuesday, April 7 in Dunedin, Fla. FGBC will send out information to registrants on refunds.

We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing around the evolving situation, and we're committed to being responsive and flexible to our members' needs.

Here are some links to reliable information about COVID-19:

Thank you for being a member of the Florida Green Building Coalition.

Sincerely,

Barry Faske
President

FGBC Background and Mission

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit 501(C)3 Florida corporation dedicated to improving the built environment. Our mission is to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic, and social benefits through regional education and certification programs.

FGBC was conceived and founded in the belief that green building programs will be most successful if there are clear and meaningful principles on which "green" qualification and marketing are based. We are a membership-based organization governed by a Board of Directors and corporate officers who are elected by the general membership.

The FGBC is continually finding new and innovative ways to educate builders, developers, local governments, and consumers about how to achieve a healthier, more environmentally sustainable future.

The purposes of the Florida Green Building Coalition are:

Awards

2004 - Sustainable Florida 'Best Practices' Award
2013 - American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) and the Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) Exemplary Water-Energy Program
