BPCA teams up with CDI to take on Clinton Global Initiative challenge
Board President Gary Goodman recently travelled to Chicago to attend the
Clinton Global Initiative America 2013 meeting. He spoke to a
large and crowded hall about the Building Performance Contractors
Association’s partnership with the Cooperative Development Institute to
create veteran-owned cooperative businesses for doing deep energy
retrofits. This project was highlighted as an exemplary approach
to addressing challenges in the Residential Energy Efficiency area, and

building performance work and create meaningful jobs that help the
