Boards and committees are important to the work USGBC Arizona does to advance sustainability in the built environment. They support USGBC Arizona's mission to "engage, educate and encourage" the Arizona community to adopt and promote green building practices to support sustainable, environmentally responsible and economically prosperous built environments and communities.
USGBC Arizona is run by a network of volunteers and committees, each of which is dedicated to a specific area of managing chapter activities and promoting green building in our communities. Volunteering on a committee is the ideal way to contribute to your local branch, get to know other members and actively continue your green education.
Please contact Dane Englert for more information. Get involved, let your voice be heard and volunteer with one of our committees today.

The GAPP Committee educates broadly and advocates narrowly to policymakers in our regional government, including elected and appointed officials at the federal, state, county and municipal levels. The GAPP Committee does this in an effort to influence public policymakers' perceptions about a sustainable built environment and how principles of green building contribute to the “triple bottom line.”

The Emerging Professionals committee offers outreach and engagement for recent graduates and those transitioning to careers in sustainability. The committee works with the community to provide valuable skill building and networking opportunities for this audience.
