Paul Tseng, owner of Advanced Building Performance, received the chapter’s first Member of the Year award. The award recognizes an individual who is a long-time practitioner of sustainability and an environmental steward.

The National Capital Region chapter of the US Green Building Council announced the recipients of the chapter’s First Annual Awards of Excellence during the organization’s annual “Midsummer Night’s Green” networking event on August 7, 2008, which was held at the World Bank Atrium. The National Capital Region chapter includes counties in Maryland adjacent to the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia.

The USGBC NCR chapter developed the Awards program in order to recognize outstanding accomplishments in sustainable design and construction, to honor USGBC member firms that have adopted green practices into their mission, and to celebrate chapter members who have advanced sustainability in the chapter’s region. The award recipients were selected by a distinguished panel of leaders from various fields in the sustainable design community and development industry.

Judges for the 2008 Awards program included: Dr. Raj Barr-Kumar, FAIA, president of the Barr Group International; Lidia Berger, Eastern Regional Director for HDR Sustainable Design Solutions; Mark Bisnow, founder and CEO of Bisnow on Business; John Maudlin-Jeronimo, FAIA, Associate Dean at University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation; Mark McInturff, principal at McInturff Architects; and Ed McMahon, holder of the Charles E. Fraser Chair on Sustainable Development at the Urban Land Institute.
