An Awards Event like No Other: Top Reasons to Attend A Midsummer Night's Green 2021
A Midsummer Night's Green 2021 is fast approaching on July 22, and this year promises to be an awards event like no other! Now in it's 20th year, A Midsummer Night's Green has long been the premier summer social event and fundraiser for the DC metro area green building community and featured the announcement of USGBC National Capital Region's annual Community Leader Awards. This year's virtual format, however, has allowed us to elevate the event even further to include the announcement of our Community Leader Award winners for USGBC Maryland and Virginia, in addition to NCR - making it a truly regional celebration!
Together Maryland, DC and Virginia constitute one of the most active and innovative green building markets in the nation. We hope you join us on July 22 as we honor the people and projects who are leading the way. In addition to the announcement of our award winners, there will be opportunities for attendees to engage and connect with their peers.
