Chapter Resource Library

Across the country the USGBC chapter network is influencing policy at the state and local levels; promoting the development of healthier, more efficient schools and workplaces; and providing renown green building education. The wealth of resources gained through the work of USGBC chapters should be leveraged to strengthen our network and advance our collective mission.

In the new Chapter Resource Library you can explore the successful case studies from chapters, connect with expert advice on nonprofit management, learn about USGBC guidance to high performance, and share resources to help the community thrive in its endeavor to shape a healthier, more sustainable future!

  • Governance covers board development, invigoration, orientation and training.
