Green Drinks in Columbia

A group of envi­ron­men­tal pro­fes­sion­als and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from com­pa­nies in the process of “going green” have been meet­ing for an event called Green Drinks for most of 2012. The group meets every other month, usu­ally on the sec­ond Tues­day. The next event will be March 12.

They will meet at Union Jacks in Colum­bia from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, in the bar or pool room area. All are wel­come to attend. There is gen­er­ally no cost to join the event, but guests will pur­chase their own drinks. Light appe­tiz­ers are pro­vided, usu­ally pizza.

And there are spon­sor­ship oppor­tu­ni­ties. Spon­sors may set up a dis­play or infor­ma­tion table, and will be pro­vided an oppor­tu­nity to speak briefly about their com­pany. They may also bring as many peo­ple as they like to the event. The cost of spon­sor­ship is $250.

Join us every other month. To join our mail­ing list, fol­low the instruc­tions at the bot­tom of this blog. It’s a great oppor­tu­nity to meet like-minded indi­vid­u­als, and to relax in good com­pany. Join us on March 12. Look for the ban­ner with the Howard County Green Busi­ness Coun­cil logo.

This event is hosted by the Howard County Green Busi­ness Coun­cil (HCGBC).

What peo­ple say about Colum­bia Green Drinks:

Dur­ing the HCGBC Green Drinks event last night, I had the oppor­tu­nity to meet a new mem­ber who is Pres­i­dent of a busi­ness that is com­pli­men­tary to mine. We exchanged infor­ma­tion and ini­ti­ated the pos­si­bil­ity for cross refer­rals. I also learned that he has a very sim­i­lar “sus­tain­able” phi­los­o­phy in how to man­age field staff, which is always great to hear. Green busi­nesses tend to chal­lenge the sta­tus quo in this way and it was great to com­pare notes. On top of all that – I am a cus­tomer of this busi­ness and was there­fore able to give him direct feed­back about how his busi­ness ethic and staff man­age­ment cre­ated a great cus­tomer expe­ri­ence. Who doesn’t love that?!”

At the last HCGBC Green Happy Hour I met some­one who works at a com­pany that recently posted a job open­ing that was of great inter­est. This per­son facil­i­tated an intro­duc­tion to the hir­ing manger, which really helped me stand out from the crowd of other appli­cants. I couldn’t ask for a bet­ter net­work­ing oppor­tu­nity. Thank you HCGBC!”

Thanks!
