As a mission-driven nonprofit organization, we rely on you to turn our vision into reality! There are a great many ways to get involved at each of our seven Regions.
Our Chapter is 100% volunteer fueled! We have a place for you no matter what you do or how much time you are able to give. Take a leadership role with a specific initiative or program, or enjoy a one-time task- or event-oriented opportunity. Because of the ever-shrinking world we live in, as well as the broad geographic spread of our Regions, one doesn't even need to leave the house to contribute in a positive manner as a member of our volunteer family. Got a special talent? Let's talk!

Emerging Professionals and Students
Emerging Professionals and Students are the energetic and dynamic leaders of tomorrow's green-building movement. These are young professionals (under 30 years of age) in the early stages of their careers who are interested or working in the sustainability sector. Our Chapter's EP group enables like-minded sustainability professionals to be a force for advancement within our community by providing a forum for networking and education. The USGBC actively works in partnership across Florida with students, faculty and administrators to strengthen campus sustainability efforts across the USA. Learn more ...

I volunteer because I believe in the mission and the urgency to affect change. I joined USGBC Florida because I want to have a bigger impact than I can have on my own. I was drawn to USGBC because we are “THE” green-building organization in the USA!
We set the standards in the industry. We are transparent and passionate. No them, only us. I believe in green building: We need to be at peace with our planet. Green building is one important way to get there.
