Scott would like to continue serving the Chapter Board because he believes passionately in the mission and values of USGBC and feels he can continue to make a positive contribution to the successful growth and sustainability of the Chapter. Prior to serving on the USGBC CT-B Board, he served as sponsorship, programs, membership and special events chair for the Florida Suncoast Chapter of IFMA (International Facility Management Association), the first Florida IFMA Chapter, then went on to serve as both vice president and then president for two consecutive years. Scott was on the organizing committee for the first USGBC Chapter in Florida, creating the Founding Member Company drive and raising $20K to charter the Chapter. He continued to grow the chapter serving as the first Membership Chair. He was asked to take the presidency in 2008 but was not able to do so as he relocated to Texas, where he now resides in Austin. Scott believes that one of the most important functions of Board members is fundraising, as well as undertaking other activities to support the priority needs of the Chapter. He feels that his knowledge of business development in his professional life and his in-depth non-profit Board experience makes him an ideal candidate to continue on the Chapter Board.
