Become a LEED committee member!
Have you considered volunteering with LEED?
LEED committee volunteers play a critical role in developing and maintaining the LEED rating system. The U.S. Green Building Council is holding an open call for self-nominations of qualified applicants to serve as members of LEED committees and working groups. The following groups are seeking new members:
- Pilot Credit Library Working Group (PCLWG)
- Energy and Atmosphere Technical Advisory Group (EA TAG)
- Indoor Environmental Quality Technical Advisory Group (EQ TAG)
- Location and Planning Technical Advisory Group (LP TAG)
- Materials and Resources Technical Advisory Group (MR TAG)
- Sustainable Sites Technical Advisory Group (SS TAG)
- Water Efficiency Technical Advisory Group (WE TAG)
- Implementation Advisory Committee (IAC)
- Technical Committee
Who should apply? LEED committee volunteers are smart, talented, and dedicated people with who can commit to regular calls (average 2 hours/month) and offline review (average 2-3 hours/call). Ideal candidates will hold one or more of the specific expertise areas identified as part of the most recent needs assessment. The needs assessment is a regular process that staff and committees conduct to identify what additional expertise areas would be beneficial in committee conversations. There is no set number of volunteer positions available, but we expect to select approximately 25 volunteers. Each volunteer position will be for a first, one year term for a maximum of four years total.
The call for volunteers will be open until Thursday, April 10th at 5:00 pm PST. After the close of the application period, USGBC and the respective committees will review the applications and make recommendations for the LEED Steering Committee and Executive Committee of the USGBC Board of Directors to review and approve.
