Aloha USGBC at UH students and advisors,

The membership kick-off was a success, with many new sign ups and more interest in campus involvement. To follow up on the discussion at the meeting, here is what we need to work on-

We are actively seeking funding to bring over a LEED instructor to teach the LEED-GA exam prep course. The course is $200 per person, so we are trying to negotiate a cheaper group rate as well as FUNDRAISE!

* ASUH granted USGBC UH $300 towards this training event.
* We are participating in the CFL exchange with Blue Planet to raise $400
* Participating in the adopt-a-recycle bin through Landscaping where we keep 100% of profits for maintaining the bin

If you can help in any way, let us know. These opportunities depend solely on how much effort we put in as a group. The more we raise, the less we pay ourselves.

We also need participants and help with:

* Lifecycle Building Challenge
* Civic Duty project
* Social media and website

Upcoming events that USGBC at UH is involved in-
