Preparing for 2013

Industry News

L&L columnist Jim Huston will host a three day-brainstorming session in late January.

| December 7, 2012

Jim Huston will be hosting a special three-day Brainstorming Meeting for green industry contractors where the theme(s) of the meeting are Lessons from the Recession & Preparing for Your 2013 Economic Future.

Huston will be leading and facilitating discussions centering on how green industry companies have weathered the storms of reduced cash flow during the recent recession and how they are preparing for their economic future in 2013.

The event will take place Jan. 27-29 at the Iron Horse Resort in Winter Park, Colo. Reservation cutoff date is Dec. 12.

The meetings begin on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 27. You can bring up to three others from your company to participate for one price of $995.00 ($695.00 for GBC members). Companies who have used our on-site consulting services qualify for the $300.00 GBC discount.

During summer and fall BSM events – weather permitting, site visits take precedence. We plan to visit as many job sites and companies as possible. The discussion format takes precedence during winter BSMs unless site visits are possible. Attendees input will help us decide upon the final topics.
