12 Noon - Luncheon and Keynote Address: The Green Revolution, San Antonio's Experience by Former Mayor Phil Hardberger

(text from Jane Henry)
Decisions we make today will determine the kind of world our children will inherit! Research shows that children's test scores go up and worker retention increases in buildings with natural day light. No one wants more dangerous chemicals in the air and water, or buildings that cause asthma and ADD because of poor indoor air quality. To make better decisions, we have to educate ourselves about the choices we are making.

Experts can explain how to make our homes, schools and city function better using less energy and less water. If your power bill is $10,000 a year and you can cut that by 40% - what is not to like about a gift of $4000? - and this good business decision is a gift that keeps giving year after year!

Exciting speakers can help us understand how good design decisions and thoughtful advance planning can cost less, not more. The attached flyer is the program for the second annual Spring into Green, a day of experts invited by the West Texas Branch of the US Green Building Council.

The keynote speaker at lunch will be the former Mayor of San Antonio, Phil Hardberger, whose two terms resulted in repositioning the city as a leader in attracting new jobs and creating a place for human beings to flourish. We can claim him as our own since he came from O’Donnell and is George Hardberger’s cousin!

Please join us for this exciting and enlightening day. You can click on the link in the flyer to start your registration on line. I hope to see you at the Underwood Center on Tuesday, April 20.
