The USGBC volunteer awards, which were given out at USGBC’s annual mid-year meeting, Convergence, recognize individuals for their incredible work and leadership over the course of the year. In 2015, six awards were given out to a total of nine individuals and groups whose dedication and commitment to assisting in USGBC's mission of creating a more sustainable built environment is demonstrated by their passion and hard work through volunteerism.
