“Above & Beyond” USGBC-STL Volunteer Recognition – April

USGBC-STL is committed to recognizing volunteers who have contributed significantly to the Chapter, devoting time and talents “above and beyond” on a particular project or program! This month, we are thrilled to recognize Richard Schuessler, Huntleigh McGehee and USGBC-STL Government Advocacy Subcommittee, Cristina Spicer, Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C., USGBC-STL Growing Green Awards Task Force and Emerging Green Builders, and Becky Finch, Missouri Lawyers Weekly and USGBC-STL Growing Green Awards Task Force.

Richard Schuessler, co-chair of the Government Advocacy Committee, has been working tirelessly this winter and spring in order to get the LEED for State buildings bill not only filed, but assigned to committee in both the house and senate and hearings scheduled. This is as far as this bill has gone since we began working on this several years ago. Richard also travelled to Jeff City to testify on behalf of the Chapter. Richard has been working with the Green Schools committee and State Reps Margo McNeil and Shane Schoeller in order to launch a Green Schools Caucus in the Missouri House. The official launch was in January in Jefferson City. Again, Richard travelled there for the launch and has been advising Reps McNeil and Schoeller in their efforts to host a reception this spring in St. Louis.

Cristina Spicer and Becky Finch – This is Cristina and Becky’s second year serving on the Growing Green Awards Task Force. Cristina chairs the committee. Both Becky and Cristina have devoted much time and effort in ensuring the success of the awards program and the March 31 event. The Task Force meets frequently and requires much work in between meetings. From reviewing contracts to selecting the venue to selling program ads to recruiting sponsors to developing talking points for our emcee, to overseeing all the many details related to judging, Becky and Cristina have given much of their free time over to ensure that we recognize those who are transforming St. Louis’ built environment!

Thanks, Richard, Cristina, and Becky, for your commitment and hard work!
