The USGBC Florida Chapter is a volunteer-governed and a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization. Our volunteer family is our lifeblood. Their contributions are priceless. They are smart and passionate, fun and tireless, giving and successful. And they know that their actions have the potential to make a huge difference in their local community -- now and in the future -- by helping educate, enlighten and empower our State to adopt an approach to building that is both ecologically and economically sustainable.

Simply put, it's through the work of our volunteers that our Chapter's education, community and advocacy efforts flourish.
Volunteer activities range from crafting our educational programs and instructive tours of green facilities to building our social networking vehicles ... from organizing our green gatherings to helping municipalities and school districts with their green initiatives. Our volunteers have educated local government officials and CEOs about sustainability, brought in high-profile speakers for important conferences, worked with children and educators to teach green principles, sponsored study sessions for eager students, organized collaborations with other organizations, celebrated the holidays together ... and much more.

Note: Volunteers are not required to maintain current USGBC Florida Chapter membership, but those in leadership positions must be members.

I joined USGBC Florida because I quickly realized it was a team of dedicated like minded professionals with the most import asset of all.. Passion.The impact USGBC Florida has on the future is education. I volunteer because I truly believe that every step we make toward sustainability and green building we are affecting the lives of our children, with two of my own, I know that nothing is more important than little humans. USGBC Florida focuses on education in the school systems and in the community, with every seminar and volunteer opportunity, a teaching moment is born and someone walks away more aware.
