Boards and committees are important to the work USGBC Arizona does to advance sustainability in the built environment. They support USGBC Arizona's mission to "engage, educate and encourage" the Arizona community to adopt and promote green building practices to support sustainable, environmentally responsible, and economically prosperous built environments and communities.

USGBC Arizona is run by a network of committees, each of which is dedicated to a specific area of managing chapter activities and promoting green building in our communities. Volunteering on a committee is the ideal way to contribute to your local branch, get to know other members, and actively continue your green education.

Feel free to contact arizona@usgbc.org for more information. Get involved, let your voice be heard and volunteer with one of our committees today.

Market Leadership Advisory Board: Members

Education Committee

Chairperson: Chad Billings, Dick & Fritsche Design Group

The Education Committee works to engage, educate and encourage the Arizona community to choose to live in and support the advancement of a sustainable, environmentally responsible and economically prosperous built environment.

Green Schools Committee

Chairperson: Fatima Garcia, Orcutt | Winslow; Brian Ballard, Shepley Bulfinch

As local green building advocates, the USGBC Arizona Green Schools Committee focuses on holistically promoting healthy green schools. The committee raises community awareness, hosts green schools events, give presentations, supports local schools, engages educators and realizes that the education of students, teachers and community is vital to the success of green schools.

Residential Committee

Chairperson: Jan Green, RE/MAX Excalibur

The Residential Green Building Committee supports professionals in the Arizona housing industry to design, build, renovate, and sell environmentally sustainable homes.

Government & Public Affairs Committee (GAPP)

Chairperson: Norma Elizondo, Evolve Technologies

The GAPP Committee educates broadly and advocates narrowly to policy makers in our regional government, including elected and appointed officials at the federal, state, county and municipal levels. The GAPP Committee does this in an effort to influence public policymakers' perceptions about a sustainable built environment and how principles of green building contribute to the “triple bottom line.”

Emerging Professionals Committee

Chairperson: Garrett Wong, Arizona State University

The Emerging Professionals committee offers outreach and engagement for recent graduates and those transitioning to careers in sustainability. The committee works with the community to provide valuable skill building and networking opportunities for this audience.
