Chapters are the local voice of USGBC

Chapters are where you can get involved with USGBC as an individual. Join one of 76 chapters nationwide and experience the heart of our grassroots efforts to transform the built environment. USGBC chapters promote our global mission at the community level.

What do chapters do?

The chapter network promotes sustainable building, advocates for green-building policies and builds networks of allies where it matters most — in the local community. Chapter members raise awareness of LEED and green building practice through education, outreach and advocacy.

Why join a chapter?

More than 30,000 members have joined USGBC chapters nationwide. Chapters provide individuals with opportunities at the local and regional levels for active involvement and leadership, while also offering learning, networking and other professional development activities. Every chapter is its own separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and has something unique to offer you and your community.
