Indoor Environmental Quality: The seminar is a marvelous opportunity to hear from a premier source of information in this arena, the Executive Director of the Healthy Building Network (HBN), founded by Bill Walsh in 2000. HBN has been a leader in creating tools that encourage the use of healthier building products including the Green Guide for Health Care, new pilot credits in LEED and the Pharos Project - an online evaluation tool for building materials.

Mr. Walsh spoke at Gulf Coast Green three years ago and at Greenbuild 2011 where he addressed a standing room crowd as he introduced a new tool for the green building movement: the Health Product Declaration. If you are concerned about what kind of toxic materials are present in your environment, this declaration is an open standard format which encourages the standardized disclosure of content and health hazard information about building products.

See http://www.greenhoustontx.gov/gbrceducation.pdf for more details and a map.
Please note that this will contribute to LEED AP credential maintenance for Live Presentations.
