What are Emerging Professionals (EP)?


EP is a vibrant, chapter-based program that focuses on professionals who are new to the green building industry and the sustainability movement. Formerly known as EGB, or Emerging Green Builders, the name was changed to Emerging Professionals to broaden the reach of the program. This program is administered by chapters through their EP committees. It’s important to note that under the USGBC chapter membership policy, the membership categories “Full,” “Associate,” and “EP” no longer exist. Instead, chapters now offer a single membership with discounts for full-time students and for full-time employees of USGBC national member companies. With this change, all chapter members are allowed to vote, sit on chapter boards and hold chapter leadership positions. Please email emergingprofessionals@usgbc.org with any questions.
