This year’s conference theme is Our Collective Resiliency. In these challenging, uncertain times, it is important to recognize the strength we have as a community and to celebrate the collective experience, knowledge, and accomplishments we have achieved.

Stacy Smedley, Skanska USA Building

In that spirit, we are excited to have keynote speaker Stacy Smedley, Director of Sustainability at Skanska USA Building, share her stories and experience. Stacy has long embraced community engagement in the pursuit of sustainable design, as well as construction methods to build resilient communities. She cofounded the SEED Collaborative, focused on restorative learning spaces. Stacy is also a Living Building Hero and was a lead developer of the Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3), an open-source tool released in 2019.

To facilitate robust conversations, the conference will feature four tracks for breakout sessions:

  • Hive Mind—Building resilient communities through collaboration, innovation, and bold action
  • Healthy Homes—Design and field practices that promote healthy and resilient homes
  • Policy Carrots—Enacting green building incentive policies to continually improve the Puget Sound environment
  • Built Science—Science and data-driven technical knowledge for designers and builders

If you're interested in presenting at this year's conference, don't forget to submit your proposal by May 21.
