VOLUNTEER

Chapters are the front door to USGBC, and each one relies on dedicated chapter volunteers to be successful. Chapters offer many opportunities for you to get active and make a difference in your community. Here are a few ways you can play a part in your chapter:

  • Advocacy: Help educate local officials and community leaders on the benefits of green building. Work to promote green building initiatives such as green schools.
  • Education: Assist with organizing LEED education programs and study groups held by your chapter.
  • Committee Involvement: Participate on a committee – all chapters have finance, membership and programming committees and many have others, too – to help your chapter grow and become a stronger voice for USGBC and green building.
  • Communications/PR: Help your chapter get the word out. Share your PR expertise or help develop communications tools such as e-blasts and local press lists.
  • Administrative: From data entry to number crunching, you can help your chapter get the necessary “stuff” done behind the scenes.
  • Emerging Professionals (EP): If you are a student or young professional, the EP committee and student group provides opportunities to get involved locally.
