What are Green Business Forums?

The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce,  Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection and  Montgomery College have partnered to create a Green Business Forum (GBF). Taking place from 8:00am – 9:30am, four times a year in the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce boardroom, each forum will feature experts who offer unique perspectives on the advantages of being a green business. Panels will be moderated by Montgomery College faculty. Presentations will be followed by Q&A. Montgomery College will offer “how-to” webinars to supplement the forums. The cost to attend the Forums is $39.00, unless otherwise noted.  Registration is required.  Learn about the Montgomery County Green Business Certification Program
