How to Attend West Coast Green Free!

West Coast Green

We’re proud media sponsors of West Coast Green and I know some of you would like to attend.  The event is fast approaching on September 25-27th at the San Jose Convention Center and we just received word from WCG that a little more volunteer help is needed!   In exchange for working a 6-hour shift, volunteers receive a full conference pass (a $575 value) and West Coast Green tshirt.  Volunteers provide crucial support enabling the success of the conference.   You’ll be able to check out over 400 exhibitors of the latest innovative building materials, hear from the 150 leaders and visionaries in green building, and experience the West Coast Green Harbinger Showhouse designed by SG-Blocks. 

To volunteer, please fill out the form at http://westcoastgreen.com/register/volunteer-register.php
