Tribal Sustainable Construction Workshop

On behalf of the workshop organizers, thank you for making this month's Sustainable Tribal Construction Workshop such a success. The following summary is provided for attendees to supplement the attached electronic versions of the power point presentations. The summary is also provided for those who were not able to attend but who wrote or called to express interest in the workshop outcomes.

Perhaps the most significant outcome was a commitment made by the three primary organizers to continue working together to offer informational as well as more advanced sessions on sustainability topics. We received very positive feedback from attendees through the evaluations as well as through conversation. The workshop received an average score of 4.3 on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 indicating excellent. We also received requests for additional information or training on the following specific topics - master planning, weatherization, project coordination and green design standards.
