As many of you know, the Passive House Alliance, a national trade organization, is being formed in parallel with other regional Passive House groups around the country. The PHA board of directors is looking for people interested in helping to found and lead the national organization. This is an opportunity to help build a strong and vital Passive House community across North America. If you are interested in participating, please see the offical announcement below...

If you are interested in such a volunteer position to help grow the newly formed PHA, please send a brief bio and a statement outlining your current interest and involvement with Passive House to Jeremy Shannon, VP/Secretary PHA, email: [address removed].
PHA Mission Statement: ?The Passive House Alliance is a national trade organization that promotes the Passive House building energy standard through public outreach, education, support of industry professionals and advocacy.
We provide marketing opportunities for our membership, and support the success and vitality of the Passive House community. Public outreach efforts include publicity, information, and education. We offer a platform for knowledge transfer within the Passive House community.?
NYPH is an independent not-for-profit organization that facilitates the exchange of information and experiences, among local, national and international practitioners of the Passive House building standard.
Presentations at the Meetup will vary from broad general introductions to specific concerns of materials, systems and methods. We hope the NY Passive House Meetup will make a meaningful and concrete contribution to the understanding of Passive House in New York.
NYPH members include PH consultants, contractors, architects, engineers, home owners, energy conscious NY-ers and developers. By becoming a NYPH member, you support NYPH and get to go to all meetups for free and help us to create promote PH as a building standard in NYC. As well as get invited to attend Professional meetings, for more in depth Passive House topics
The meetup members are people simply interested in finding out more about Passive House and besides NYPH members include all people simply interested in PH and would like to get updates of when/where NYPH events are taking place. Meetup members do pay a small fee, which helps to defray the cost of organizing NYPH events (again NYPH members get in for free). So no matter your background, if you are interested in making more healthy, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, join today!
