The Colorado Roofing Association is holding a two-part discussion to help members understand the popular green-building certification industry.

Dubbed “LEED 101,” referring to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program, the two-hour talk June 18 at the Comfort Inn Showroom in Denver will help members work their way through the maze of terms such as Energy Star, “cool” roofing and related words.

The first session, “Building Green: How Do We Get There?” will be presented by John J. Little, a project manager for the Poudre School District in Fort Collins, Colo.

The second session, “Energy, LEED and Sustainability,” will be hosted by Johns Manville roof division engineering manager T.J. Stock.
