Monthly Event:
General Membership Meeting

The General Membership Meeting is held the second Thursday of every month at the VEIC offices in South Burlington (map).

This meeting is where people interested in Passive House can come to meet and discuss the standard. Most of the attendees are professionals working in the building industry: consultants, architects and builders, but all who are interested in Passive House are welcome.

The time and date, and any special topic are listed on the homepage of this site. 

Remote Attendance: You can also attend the General Membership Meeting remotely. We set up a GotoMeeting to allow people to attend the meeting from their homes or offices. This saves quite a bit of travel time and makes the, sometimes long, travel times a non-issue. 

If you would like to attend virtually please sign up for our email list and you will receive an invitation for the GoToMeeting webinar of the General Meeting before the meeting happens.
