Urban Green Council relies on the dedication of many industry leaders, experts, and volunteers to advance our initiatives. Each year, we celebrate these extraordinary efforts at two key events: Annual Service Awards and our Annual Gala. This year we also introduced a new competition, the EBie Awards.
