BuildingsNY would like to thank our Education Advisory Board for all their help in building the 2012 Education Program to meet the growing needs of the NY metro area.
Meet Conference Chair Rob Watson
The BuildingsNY Education Advisory Board is led by Conference Chair Rob Watson. Rob has been programming the Conference since 2009. He is the Executive Editor of GreenerBuildings.com. He also serves as the Chairman, CEO and Chief Scientist of the EcoTech International Group, which helps clients around the world achieve cost-effective high performance green buildings.
Under Rob's direction as the "Founding Father of LEED" and as its national Steering Committee Chairman between 1994 and 2005, the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED rating system became the most widespread and fastest-growing standard by which green buildings are measured worldwide. A pioneer of the modern green building movement for over 20 years, in 2007 Rob Watson founded the EcoTech International Group to meet the fast-growing demand for green building technologies and services in China, India and the U.S.
