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 kicks off our campaign to involve recently returning veterans in the building performance work and create meaningful jobs that help the environment and the economy.
