Washington—The U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC)) GreenBuild 2010 conference will host Colin Powell as its keynote speaker this year.

General Powell has made another career of sharing his lessons of leadership, honed through his distinguished military service, his tenure as the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and his role as Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO, president and founding chair, USGBC. “His keen insights and global perspective are especially relevant to our movement in these times of great challenge and change.”

The USGBC will be adding to the list of speakers over the next few weeks leading up to Greenbuild.
