March 28th - PAAFC's Tigers with Green Stripes

The Princeton Alumni Association of Fairfield County will be hosting its annual Tigers with Green Stripes event on Saturday, March 28th at Audubon Greenwich (613 Riversville Rd, Greenwich, CT 06831; map) from 1-4pm.

The event will focus on the exploding business of energy efficiency and environmental measures in the real estate industry and the opportunity for diverse career opportunities in this space. Much of this is happening right here in Connecticut, particularly with the C-PACE program and the Green Bank becoming a nationwide model. 

PAAFC is delighted to have Rob Klee ’96, Commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), as our special guest along with a diverse and experienced group of leaders facilitating the groups including event organizers: Steve Hall ’65, Mike Sherber ’79, and Allan Shope – architect of the Audubon’s extraordinary green. Socio-Economic development goes hand-in-hand with this theme. 

The format for the networking will employ the World Café Method for maximum interaction, learning and mentoring.
