Local Leadership

Event Venue: The Thornhill Club, 7994 Yonge Street, Thornhill, ON

Event Date: March 21, 2019


Leadership drives change. Nothing happens in a vacuum and nothing great happens without great leadership.

This dinner event will feature speakers highlighting the importance of local leadership and collaboration in getting innovative, sustainable housing built.

This evening’s panel of speakers features:

  • the Mayor of East Gwillimbury, Virginia Hackson, who has taken a leadership role in her community to ensure that new homes built are innovative and sustainable and are brought to market in the most direct way.
  • There will also be a panel discussion entitled INNOVATION NOT REGULATION that will include a builder, a municipal building official and a planner discussing how they can work together in a collaborative way to overcome hurdles to developing innovative, sustainable housing in most most efficient way possible.
  • Also featured at this free dinner event are the Builders who have won recognition in the Cross Border Challenge of RESNET/CRESNET. These are the builders that have achieved the LOWEST HERS scores in one of several categories. Let’s celebrate their leadership!

Builders, designers, energy raters, municipal staff and others who work in the sustainable housing sector are invited to register for the FREE dinner event.  Space is limited.  If you are a manufacturer of innovative products that you would like to be featured at this event please contact our staff for more details.
