Chris McEntee

Executive Director | American Geophysical Union

Chris McEntee has experience in the health care industry, the design industry and science. She is bringing these perspectives to lead the vision for the renovation of the AGU headquarters. As CEO of AIA, she initiated the 2030 program, facilitated architect input into ICC green code, and led AIA efforts to align public policy at local and national level with AIA’s 2030 carbon neutral building position statement. At AGU, in addition to leading the vision for the headquarters renovation, she has initiated the Thriving Earth Exchange which matches scientist to local communities to solve problems such as urban heat exchange and disaster, hazards and climate change adaptation, and mitigation. Chris will review the project’s mission, and discuss AGU’s plans to share its data with their membership and the public to advance building energy performance.
