March PHMN Happy Hour cancelled

Hello everyone,

Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, we are cancelling our March 24th Happy Hour. Our leadership circle will also be taking extra precautions during this time—taking advantage of online conferencing tools or phone conversations instead of in-person meetings—as we continue working on a range of agenda items to further the adoption of passive house. 

Among our top priorities for 2020 is planning for an upcoming Certified Passive House Designer/Consultant training this fall as well as speaking events, practitioner and policy-related roundtables, and Passive House open houses. Undoubtedly, we will be considering which of these events can be offered as web conferences.

Please stay tuned for updates regarding future every fourth Tuesday happy hours and event offerings as we continue to assess this fluid situation.  

Thank you & stay safe out there,
Passive House Minnesota
