Share Your Projects and Expertise in the 2018
Green Building Directory

We are starting the process of planning our 2018 Green Building Directory. With 25,000 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.

Beyond the directory listings automatically provided to all members at the business level and higher, there are several ways you can benefit from more visibility for your business in this year's directory.
  1. Contribute content. Each year, our directory is enriched with article features and case studies written by our members and about their projects. For the best chance to be included in 2018, please email your story ideas now.
  2. Place an ad or enhance your listing. Watch your inbox for ad details and a rate sheet in the coming months. Email with questions.
  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 all the related 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!
