CTGBC Board of Directors  2014 - 2017

            Wayne Cobleigh

Manager - Project Development

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc.,



My emphasis in the year ahead will be implementing the new chapter organization structure to improve communications and operations by connecting and collaborating with our volunteer leaders, members and future members to build on the momentum we gained in 2013. I am particularly interested in leveraging the leadership of CEFIA and the success of C-PACE finance for energy efficiency and renewable energy in 2013.  In 2014, I will be advocating for expanding the eligibility of the C-PACE program to the renovation and new construction of buildings in communities vulnerable to riverine or coastal flooding and sea level rise.
