Mark your calendar with these CE-approved events taking place across the U.S.

LEED Green Associates are specialists in today’s sustainable building standards and marketplace. They are knowledgeable about emerging technologies, current industry research and environmental trends.

Like all LEED professionals, LEED Green Associates must maintain their credentials by earning continuing education (CE) hours. Three of these 15 CE hours are required to be LEED-specific, and all must be earned within two years of obtaining the credential. CE hours can be earned in a variety of ways, including project participation, online courses on the Education @USGBC platform and attendance at CE-approved events from GBCI.

USGBC regularly hosts regional conferences, seminars and workshops that are GBCI CE-approved. Mark your calendar with these upcoming events taking place across the U.S.
