Arsenault joins SiGBA

Sierra Green Building Association (SiGBA) announced John Arsenault was recently hired as their new Education Director. Education was recognized as a major goal in 2009. Reaching out as a resource to local schools and bridging the gap between local students and the workforce will help bolster the sustainability of the region. Through a number of local initiatives, John will manage SiGBA’s local education programs.

Arsenault comes to SIGBA as founder and owner of Duran Property Management and an adjunct English professor at Sierra College where he is also involved with the Institute for Sustainability. He has a wide range of experience from expedition guiding and instruction to program management, from environmental research and education to traditional classroom education and Masters in Education.

While SIGBA locally promotes and encourages green building and design practices, SIGBA also provides a strong advertising and networking arm for local businesses. With the growing momentum in the country to create and strengthen a green economy, SiGBA looks to create opportunities to increase local access to green technology, design opportunities and training. SiGBA is excited to bring John on board to help support education in the local schools and community at large as well as advocate green living and green building technical skills and training.
