I am the editor in chief of EcoHome magazine, and program
director for The Hanley Award for Vision and Leadership in Sustainable Housing.
I’m writing to inform you that you’ve been selected by our
2010 Nominating Committee as one of 12 distinguished industry leaders being
considered to receive the 2010 Hanley Award.
And I want to congratulate you and to share information
about the program, and where we are in the selection process.
The Hanley Award is sponsored by The Hanley Foundation,
Hanley Wood Business Media and EcoHome magazine in collaboration with the U.S.
Green Building Council.
The 2010 Award and its $50,000 grant will be presented at
the USGBC Hanley Award Dinner on November 17th, during the 2010 Greenbuild
International Conference and Expo in Chicago
Should you be selected as this year’s recipient, the program
requires your attendance to receive The Hanley Award. Last year we presented
the first annual Award to Edward Mazria of Architecture 2030.
Official nominations for the award were submitted by a
select committee of national industry leaders which this year included Phil Crone, Green Built Texas; Jean Dimeo,
EcoHomemagazine.com; Michelle Kaufmann, AIA; Don Carr, NAHB Research Center;
and Gail Vittori, Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems. Eligible
nominees are residential construction industry professionals, or those working
in technical research, product development, educational outreach, environmental
advocacy, governmental policy, and related areas, who have made deep,
long-standing, and influential commitments to sustainability, and significant
and lasting contributions to the widespread implementation of environmental
building concepts, techniques, and innovations in advancing sustainable housing
in the United States.
On June 16th a distinguished panel of judges will meet in
our Washington, DC offices to review and evaluate this
year’s slate of candidates and select the award recipient. We will announce the
results of the judging as soon afterwards as possible. The 2010 Hanley Award
judges include Michael J. Hanley, co-founder and retired CEO of Hanley Wood and
president of The Hanley Foundation; Frank Anton, longtime industry
thought-leader and CEO of Hanley Wood; Joyce Mason, VP of Marketing for Pardee
Homes in California, a green building leader in themselves; Nate Kredich, VP of
Residential Market Development for the USGBC; and last year’s recipient Edward
Mazria, founder of Architecture 2030. I have included a full list of the
nominees below, and have attached last year’s feature article about the program
and our first recipient.
