USGBC-NCR Green Tie Affair 2019

You’re invited to the post-holiday party and winter fundraiser that brings out everyone in the industry from across the DMV – USGBC National Capital Region’s Green Tie Affair! By popular demand, we’re returning for the second year in a row to District Winery, DC’s only operational commercial winery, which is located in DC’s lively The Yards waterfront neighborhood. Join 300 of your colleagues for an evening of networking while enjoying beautiful views of the Anacostia River boardwalk. We’ll have an array of hors d’oeuvres and an open bar featuring local beer and delicious wines made onsite. Proceeds from this event will support our local education, advocacy, and community outreach initiatives.

This year’s event is themed “Sub-zero,” as we celebrate and recognize the amazing work being done in our community to push the needle to zero and beyond. Net-zero energy, net-zero carbon, net-zero waste, and more – this event will highlight the groundbreaking projects, technologies and policy work that has made the DMV a leader in the global net-zero movement.

Join us and raise a glass to net-zero innovation and to the cool possibility of a regenerative future beyond. Together we can make the DC region a greener, healthier, resilient place to live, work, and play!
