What is the difference between individual and organization membership?


Individuals join USGBC at the community level. Companies and organizations, meanwhile, join USGBC at the organization level.

USGBC communities provide local opportunities for active involvement and leadership through learning, networking and other professional development activities. Communities also raise awareness of green building through outreach and advocacy in the area. Learn more or join a community.

Joining USGBC on the organizational level allows companies to support green building and shape a national movement important to our country’s future. Member companies’ employees are eligible to participate on committees that develop and revise LEED ratings systems, plan advocacy efforts and organize the annual Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Learn more or become a member.
