It's National Volunteer Appreciation Week! USGBC Florida would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank our wonderful volunteers across the Sunshine State who make our programs and events possible. We're incredibly fortunate to have these dedicated and passionate individuals in our statewide community give their time, talent and treasure to help create a greener, healthier and more resilient future for us all.
For more than a decade, we have worked in Florida toward our mission of market transformation through the LEED green building program, robust educational offerings, our regional network of volunteers and advocacy in support of public policy that encourages and enables green building and communities. Our volunteers' hard work and contributions have singularly made this happen. Indeed, our volunteer family is our lifeblood, and their contributions are priceless.
So, thank you, USGBC Florida volunteers! You are the front-line soldiers and educators for this movement. Your work sows the seeds of change that are vital to this market-altering green revolution, and we couldn't do it without you.
Want to make an impact in sustainability? Make new friends? Make a difference in your community? Participate in the fulfilling experiences you can have as a member of the USGBC Florida family.
Volunteers are based in each of our seven regions—Central Florida, Florida Capital (Tallahassee), Florida Gulf Coast, Heart of Florida (Gainesville), Northeast Florida (Jacksonville), Northern Gulf Coast (Pensacola) and South Florida.
Get started today by downloading our USGBC Volunteer Manual and registering for an online orientation for new volunteers. This session provides you with the basic information you need to volunteer with USGBC.
