GET INVOLVED

Thanks for your interest in joining a USGBC committee or working group. We are always on the lookout for candidates desiring to use their individual talents to strengthen USGBC North Texas, LEED, and the green building movement as a whole. Without volunteers, this movement simply would not be possible.

The Chapter's skilled and diverse membership is its most valuable asset. Our members participate in a variety of committees that develop programs and events for various segments of the region's green building community and/or assist the Chapter in a variety of operational functions that help us achieve our goals.

 

The Advocacy Committee works at the municipal and state government levels to promote community green policies, resolve green building procedural roadblocks, and establish relationships with local leaders to expand public policy.

Chair: Jeffrey Florey


The Communications Committee serves to provide information to support communications to its membership and the community at-large, with the focus of increasing awareness of programs and Chapter information through the website, e-newsletters, case studies, public relations and various forms of social media.
