Miami-Dade and the Keys
Branch Meeting

March 17 Program:
Wind Power and Sustainable Energy 
and Job Creation

The Miami-Dade and the Keys Branch of the USGBC South Florida Chapter has an enviable track record of hosting outstanding educational programs and tours. 

This month is certainly no exception!  If you are a stakeholder in Florida’s economy, our National security, or the environment, how we acquire and use energy is important to you.  Our speaker, Jamie Schlinkmann, is an engineer with more than 15 years of company leadership and product development experience in the renewable energy market.  The program will discuss what renewable energy options exist in Florida and the role of wind power.  It will also compare energy generation of Wind Power to Hydro, Biomass, Solar, Wave/Tidal and Ocean Current.  Jamie will also cover wind technology and wind power and the financial benefits for wind power in Florida.

Our registration and meet-'n'-greet runs from 5:30-6:30pm.  From 6:30-7pm we conduct our general business meeting, and our educational presentation runs from 7-8pm.

Our Branch meetings are free to USGBC members, and non-members are charged a nominal $10 admission fee to help cover meeting costs.  To join the USGBC, click here or you can join at the meeting.

Top-shelf education, delectable edibles, a terrific venue, and great fun -- what better way to spend a Wednesday evening!  Please come out and join in … and bring a friend!  The more you get involved with the Branch's activities, the greater the wealth of contacts, resources and information -- including particulars (e.g., workshops) tied to securing LEED accreditation -- that are available to you.

If you have any questions regarding the Miami-Dade and the Keys Branch or this month's meeting, or if would like to participate in future presentations, please contact Carole Schafmeister or Susie Glass.
