BuildGreen 2009 Conference Next Month in Philly

I learned this week that Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter will attend the 2009 BuildGreen Conference in his home town next month.

That's a coup for this conference that is the first conference in the region that will convene all green building stakeholders in the design/build, policy, manufacturing, and economic development/investment community.

Mayor Nutter has a lot on his mind right now with his budget woes, but he clearly sees the connection between green building and economic development and its importance to the region and his goal of making Philadelphia the "Greenest City in America" by 2015.

I'll be live blogging from the conference here on the green skeptic.

NOTE: Early Bird Registration is Monday, September 14th.

Where and when: October 14 - 15, 2009, Sheraton City Center Hotel, Philadelphia
