Who could be more qualified than one of the principal authors of LEED for Homes to provide insight on the best ways to make the program work?
LEED for Homes, like other rating systems, is an assessment tool. This means that while it provides some "how-to" information (at the level of individual strategies or "credits"), it doesn't offer any guidance for how to approach the design and construction of a high-performing home differently than a conventional project. Ann Edminster will offer some of that missing guidance in this webinar.
It gets better. Not only do you not have to jet off to some city to sit in some auditorium during some high-priced conference to take this in... it's free. Just sign up and it's yours for the taking on June 2, at 2:00 pm Eastern (1:00 pm Central, noon Mountain, 11:00 am Pacific), right on your computer. A gift from GreenBuildingAdvisor.com. The presenter, Ann Edminster, is a longtime green building mover and shaker. In addition to being one of the main people who developed LEED for Homes (she was its co-chair through most of its making), she's also a past member of the LEED Steering Committee, and a member and past co-chair of the USGBC's Materials and Resources Technical Advisory Group. She co-authored Efficient Wood Use In Residential Construction: A Practical Guide to Saving Wood, Money, and Forests, has written bunches of technical papers and articles, and has been an invited speaker at dozens of regional, national, and international green building conferences over the past 15 years. She's the founding principal of the environmental design consulting firm Design AVEnues.

Some really solid tips in this webinar. If every homeowner was a little more LEED comfortable, this world would be a much more energy efficient place.

3 HI Beth, I think you can get posted by Mark Piepkorn on 08/31/2009 at 08:46 am

HI Beth, I think you can get at it from here - http://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/archived-webinars - though I didn't click through the links on that page to make sure they still work. For whatever help it might be, I'm also going to forward your question to Ann.

4 Hi Mark, Is there an archive posted by beth adams on 08/31/2009 at 08:01 am

Hi Mark, Is there an archive to Ann's presentation? I missed it and have spent a few minutes searching the related sites but have not found where this could be. Could you point me in the right direction if her presentation is archived somewhere? Thank you.

The USGBC didn't think so. It's gone. 'Nuff said.
