The Passive House Network Announces the Appointment of Two New Board Members

New board members add critical new perspectives as PHN grows headed toward 2022.

The Passive House Network announced today the appointment of two new board members to the board of directors. This brings the number of board members to twelve.

Lori Atwater, based in Los Angeles, leads Transformation Village Inc, a developer of sustainable master planned communities. Katelyn Meehan is a relationships manager at Wells Fargo in the Community Lending and Investment platform, and is based in New York City. 

Lori Atwater noted, “As a developer, I understand the urgency to successfully engage the challenges of sustainability, and Passive House supports beneficial health, social and environmental outcomes. So, I look forward to supporting The Passive House Network as a board member, making it a more effective driver of the building industry change we dearly need.”

Katelyn Meehan added, “It has been very exciting to see the benefits of Passive House design and construction in the affordable housing space.  There is an opportunity to continue providing high-quality housing that delivers healthier occupants, resilience, and affordability but we are just scratching the surface of the need.  With that said, I couldn’t be happier to join the board and help push for greater Passive House adoption across the building industry.”

With COP26 around the corner, and the urgency for climate action never greater, we’re proud to announce the addition of Lori Atwater and Katelyn Meehan as board members,” said Board Chair, Bronwyn Barry, “because Lori and Katelyn each bring not just strong industry experience and individual perspectives, but a commitment to Passive House as a critical driver in our effort to realize a truly sustainable built environment. We expect their voices and support will make our board, and our organization, stronger and more effective.
