The USGBC Florida Capital Region's volunteers are a group of dedicated professionals from all sectors of the building industry and local community committed to transforming the market to one that designs and builds smarter, creates sustainable communities, and illustrates the profitability of building green. Our Region is a volunteer-based, consensus-driven subset of the USGBC Florida Chapter, made up of a Board of Directors and dedicated family of volunteers. Our goal is to be THE source for all things sustainable in the greater Tallahassee area, and we strive to achieve our mission through education, outreach and advocacy in our work and community environments. And while we're at it, we have a whole bunch of fun!
