Contractor Transition & Recognition
Volunteer organizations like the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild, rely on dedicated and highly-skilled contractors who keep the day-to-day operations functioning smoothly and professionally, allowing volunteers to focus on their tasks. Since 1993 the Guild has grown to rely on the stability and continuity of specific people who perform critical foundational services. Among the many highly valued persons that support the Guild, there are three who we would like to highlight. They are our Membership Administrator - Sheldon O'dahl, Website Administrator - Danielle Johnson, and Bookkeeper - Louann Rizor.

Now even that’s changing. And with the help of the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild, those changes are happening faster and building green is moving much more quickly into the mainstream.
