USGBC Georgia Chrysalis Community

Leadership Awards Celebration

Event details

Thursday, November 16, 2023

Interface Headquarters, 1280 W Peachtree Steet, NW, Atlanta, Georgia


About the Chrysalis Celebration

Originally called the Chrysalis Awards, USGBC Georgia created its annual awards program to broaden the conversation between the green building industry and our green community. A chrysalis is the form a caterpillar takes before it emerges from its cocoon as a fully formed moth or butterfly. It is considered a transformational state for insects as they change from a larvae to adult. USGBC's mission is to transform the building market, and our award winners and finalists represent the leading-edge of this transformation and the movement towards green, healthy, resilient buildings for all.


A highly-anticipated annual convening of industry leaders and sustainability advocates from across Georgia, our Chrysalis Awards Celebration includes a ceremony recognizing award recipients and a network reception with drinks and refreshments. Attendees vote to decide which of our awards finalists will take home our prestigious People's Choice Award.

Keynote Speaker

USGBC Georgia is thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker will be Brandy Hall, Founder and Managing Director at Shades of Green Permaculture.


Brandy Hall founded Shades of Green Permaculture in 2008. Since then, her company has grown to a staff of 20, and has worked with over a thousand clients applying permaculture across contexts. Hall is passionate about leading a purpose-driven business that actively creates a healthier world every single day. Hall’s roots are in building. She earned her General Contractor's license directly after completing undergraduate work at the age of 20, and began training as a stone mason where she fell in love with the way intelligent design responds to the natural world. Hall has nearly two decades of experience in building off-grid water systems, landscape construction, and integrated farming systems. She also serves on the Pine Lake City Council and spends lots of time outdoors with her husband, Aaron, their daughter, and their rambunctious pup, Peanut Butter.
