GAF x COTE: Looking at the Future
This 2019 video was compiled by GAF, a COTE sponsor.
As you may have heard, there is a resolution coming for a vote on Wednesday at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas: AIA Resolution on Urgent and Sustained Climate Action.
We're into the final push of getting out the vote to pass the resolution next Wednesday, June 5th afternoon in Las Vegas. This requires 2/3s of the voting delegates to pass.
So we're asking anyone who 1) is attending as a delegate or 2) can support passage with those coming from your chapter as delegates for their help.
The final resolution is attached along with a summary of the recommendations and the voting process (it's tricky!).If anyone from this esteemed group is going to be a delegate and is willing to make a statement in support on the floor that would be TERRIFIC. If this describes you, please contact me (email@example.com) and we can get you some talking points as needed.
