What percentage of your time is spent in a built environment, from a building to a city block? 75 percent? 80 percent? According to the U.S. EPA, the average American spends 90 percent of their time indoors. As you can see, the quality of the built environment affects us all.
The USGBC Iowa community is a volunteer-based group dedicated to transforming the way buildings are designed, built and operated to improve the quality of life for all. We represent members with diverse professional backgrounds, from those who join with enthusiasm for sustainability to those in the building design profession, such as engineers and architects.
A local market leadership advisory board (MLAB), educational opportunities such as our annual meeting, networking events such as our Sustainable Community Bike Tour and service opportunities, such as Green Apple Day of Service events at local schools, have been provided for our membership and greater community alike. USGBC Iowa has been growing, and there are even more opportunities for partnership, such as the ADVANCE program, to assist organizations and communities along their path to sustainability.
We have great opportunities for improvement in Iowa, and we can work together to establish and meet our collective goals for sustainability. If this excites and motivates you, or you would like to learn more about us and the partnership opportunities available, please look at our community sponsorship brochure or email Korinne Haeffel. Your involvement and support has an impact as we all move, work and live in the built environment.
Annual sponsorship not in your budget for 2018? We understand. As your organization works through your fiscal planning for 2019, please consider including support of USGBC Iowa.
