USGBC MN is an extraordinary chapter of the U.S., Green Building Council. I have been a member and volunteer for several years and am very impressed with the energy, committment, and passion of the organization and its individual members. It is great to meet and learn from this group of people.

USGBC MN is impacting the community in the Twin Cities in positive ways and being involved with the chapter allows me to help make this happen.

The Great!

I've learned a great deal about green building best practices by attending tours and seminars. It has also been very helpful to work side-by-side with some very professional volunteer leaders and gain insights for professional growth.

I would make the membership types easier to understand. People sometimes get confused by the difference between national membership (organiztions), chapter membership (individuals), and chapter sponsorship (organizations).

USGBC-MN has a very active membership. The organization includes leaders from every sector of the building industry working to promote buldings that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places to live and work. The chapter sponsors many educational programs and events, research initiatives, advocacy outreach, and resources for the local green community.

I've been involved with the MN USGBC Chapter for over two years and have developed a deeper understanding of our mission, as individuals, the importance of sustainability, and to help raise awareness with those around us. I've gained a personal satisfaction with my involvement and feel like I'm making a difference. We're gaining momentum with our goals within the chapter and I look forward to raising awareness in the communities and schools. I'm proud to be a part of the MN Chapter and look forward to my continue involvement.

we need more marketing support / sponsorship to really make a difference to raise the awareness in our communities.

Serving as a volunteer for the the U.S. Green Building Council Minnesota Chapter has really opened my eyes to the importance of green and sustainable buildings. The Chapter's focus on green schools is vital to our children. I would strongly encourage anyone to support the USGBC Minnesota Chapter efforts.
