Learn from green building experts

Learn about LEED, green certification programs and new technologies like Arc at IMPACT. The conference offers presentations, case studies and exhibitors that illustrate the best of green building in the region. Attendees can earn up to nine continuing education hours, including GBCI, LEED-specific hours, AIA and others.

Meet your peers

Strengthen your business relationships from around the region that last beyond the conference. Network with others during our green building tours, receptions, conversation corners and our legacy project at River’s Edge Academy.

Be inspired

Explore the latest products and services to take your building project to the next level in our expanded exhibit hall. Plus, interact with leading companies moving the green building movement forward, like our visionary sponsor, Xcel Energy.

"The New Way Forward"

Recognizing that the only way to progress toward a more sustainable and equitable future is by challenging—and overcoming—the status quo, the theme of this year’s IMPACT conference is "The New Way Forward." Emphasizing the collaborative spirit of green building professionals across the region, we relentlessly build toward a future where everyone in the Midwest can thrive, and we continuously seek greater knowledge to inform our approaches in a rapidly changing world.

IMPACT is a regional event hosted by the local communities of USGBC Central Plains, USGBC Iowa, USGBC Minnesota, USGBC Missouri Gateway, USGBC Nebraska Flatwater, USGBC North Dakota and USGBC Wisconsin.

Register by March 30 to take advantage of early bird rates.
