Matawan, NJ – December 7, 2010 - Vasantha Madasu, Chief Executive Officer announced today that CMI is proudly sponsoring the 9th Annual US Green Building Council New Jersey (USGBC NJ) Holiday Celebration at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, on December 7, 2010, 6:30 pm. This carbon neutral event celebrates the successes of 2010 and the vision of buildings and communities that generate and sustain the health and vitality of all life.

According to CMI's Account Executive Lou Petto, "This night is a chance to network with professionals from across industries interested in green initiatives and influencing change in New Jersey. I look forward to attending each year to help serve the community, providing key resources to companies, furthering their growth and the critical ideas this council promotes. CMI can provide a key technologist for a solar company on the move or a design engineer charged with product improvements for monitoring energy efficiency." Lou will be attending again this year along with Sam Shapanka, Account Executive and Amy Felton-Toth, Director of Marketing.

The mission of the New Jersey Chapter is to be NJ's foremost leader promoting, advocating, and providing education for the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of high performance buildings and communities that are environmentally responsible, cost effective, productive, and healthy places to live, learn and work.
