LEED Fellows are the most distinguished green building professionals in the world
LEED Fellows are vanguards in the field whose vision and leadership have influenced the transformation of the built environment through green design and practice.
Potential Fellows are nominated by their peers (who themselves must meet a set of eligibility requirements) and are evaluated in four of five “mastery elements” of the green building elite: technical proficiency (required), education and mentoring, leadership, commitment and service, and advocacy.
Duties of LEED Fellows
LEED Fellows are expected to share their knowledge and experience by participating on committees related to LEED, through speaking engagements, and by publishing articles, case studies and other materials to help nourish the green building profession.

To maintain LEED Fellow status, LEED Fellows are also required to maintain their LEED AP with specialty credential. Upon retirement, the LEED Fellow credential changes to the Fellow Emeritus credential.
The LEED Fellow Handbook contains detailed information on the nomination process.
