The Central Upstate "Green Team" will be at Booth 1309 for the event.   See the conference agenda at:

Central Upstate NY has a strong connection to the U.S. Green Building Council.  Some early key members came from the Carrier Corporation in Syracuse, and the US GBC is headed by Rick Fedrizzi, a Syracuse native.  (Photo:  Rick Fedrizzi in Syracuse at opening of HB2009 and the SyracuseCoE Opp Ex at the OnCenter in September 2009)
