Central Atlanta Progress (CAP) is pleased to announce Shelby Busó as its new Program Director of Sustainability Initiatives.  Effective March 17, Shelby will step into her new role with CAP and the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge (ABBC) team. 

As many of you know, Shelby is no stranger to the ABBC or in-town sustainability initiatives.  She most recently has worked for Midtown Alliance where she has assisted in the creation of the Midtown EcoDistrict via Greenprint Midtown.  She has also worked on the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge, Midtown EcoDistrict Luminaries, and public space recycling programs.  Additionally, Shelby managed the Midtown Transportation team, which partners with Midtown employers and property managers to promote the use of sustainable transportation options.  She previously worked for The Clean Air Campaign here in Atlanta and the U.S. District Court in San Juan, Puerto Rico after receiving her law degree and Masters of Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School.  She graduated from Wake Forest University with a B.A. in Anthropology and minors in Environmental Studies and Spanish.  Shelby enjoys renovating her old Decatur home with her husband Rob, two kids, two dogs, one cat, and many fish.  She is active in her community as a board member of the Wylde Center, which teaches environmental awareness through hands-on gardening and outdoor education programs in Atlanta and Decatur.

We believe Shelby is an excellent addition to the CAP team.  Join us in congratulating her on her new position and wishing her well for the work ahead.
