The Atlanta Branch of USGBC Georgia serves all of North Georgia and Metro Atlanta. The Atlanta Branch serves its members through a strong focus on education, LEED training, local partnerships, networking, communications, and advocacy.
Branch committees provide a great opportunity for members to be more engaged with USGBC Georgia. If you are interested in serving in any capacity on one or more of our local branch committees, please email us for more information.
Educational Programs and Events Committee
The focus of the Education and Events Committee is to provide quality education, outreach and networking opportunities for members. The Education and Events Committee is responsible for planning Atlanta Branch events, including recurring educational sessions, credential maintenance programs, lunch-and-learns, membership outreach, networking events, tours and collaborative programs with other professional organizations.
The Outreach Committee complements the mission of the Atlanta branch by scheduling and organizing our presence at public events such as trade shows, community festivals, green awareness activities and speaking engagements. This committee is charged with raising awareness about USGBC, growing membership and promoting sustainability at home and in the workplace. With this in mind, we strive to provide and participate in varied and diverse events that will actively engage broad audiences such as college students, emerging professionals, minority organizations, faith-based organizations, seniors and the public at large.
Participation on this committee provides rewarding teamwork and volunteering opportunities. By introducing and educating local communities about the benefits of sustainability to their lives, we are working toward everyone living, working and playing in green buildings.
We believe that green buildings have the ability to improve human health and preserve the earth's resources. As residents of Georgia, we have unique economic interests in green building policy. The advocacy committee works to advance green building policy in our state legislature, cities, schools, workplaces and homes.
We can't do it alone. We need your help. Get involved today!
