Share Your Projects and Expertise in 2019 Green Building Directory

We are starting the process of planning our 2019 Green Building Directory. With 30,000 copies distributed at 100 spots throughout Western North Carolina, this directory is a great way to share your company's unique offerings in the broader community as well as position your brand for high visibility in a targeted demographic.

We include listings for all members at the business level and higher, and there are several ways you can benefit from even more visibility in our 2019 issue.
  1. Contribute content. Each year, our directory is enriched with article features and case studies written by our members and about their projects. This year's directory will celebrate regenerative design, and we are particularly interested in articles that would explore related topics around energy, waste, water, embodied carbon, toxic chemicals in construction and biophillia. To be included, email story ideas to
  2. Place an ad or enhance your listing. Click here to review ad rates, then save your space by emailing
  3. Become a member. Whether you're joining for the first time or renewing after a lapse, there's no better time to become a member  and benefit from the marketing exposure.

Our annual directory is an impressive reflection of our membership and an invaluable resource for our community. We appreciate your participation in the process and presence in the finished product!
