USGBC MN Chapter is a great non for profit organization that connects you with people, programs, and resources for green buildings. These benefits apply to many segments such as residential buildings, schools, commercial buildings and much more. The chapter membership includes architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers, planners, facility managers, corporate real estate managers, consultants, scientists, educators, students, and many more professions.
The USGBC MN Chapter organizes tour events, workshops, meet-ups, and continuing education programs to provide numerous opportunities for education and networking. We as USGBC Rochester Committee also support the USGBC MN Chapter with advocacy resources to assist with the development of educational programs, and tour events. Our mission is to engage young professionals to nurture career growth and networking amongst the future sustainability leaders. These programs are made possible through the strength of our volunteers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

First hand experience as a USGBC Rochester Committee Chair. We had success in having our first green event "Cascade Meadow Science Center". the event has attracted more than 45 people who were so interested in sustainbility and green Building. The Chapter was extremely professional and hosted a terrific event, using the time and talent of many volunteers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

think that there should be more marketing support and sponsorship in order to increase awarness of Green building. Also recruit more staff to help other communities such as the Rochester area which expanded a lot recently and in need of having more regular green events as well as continuing education seminars.

The USGBC-MN Chapter is an exceptional non-profit organization that consistently promotes the merits of a triple-bottom line approach. The Chapter is a strong advocate for education, through its own programs and support of other educational offerings. The Chapter engages the business community through sponsorship offerings and promoting case studies of excellent green building efforts. The Chapter serves as a clearinghouse to link people seeking assistance with the appropriate talent base to help solve issues. The Chapter offers a wide spectrum of opportunities for member participation and involvement. The Chapter supports public sector efforts through speaking opportunities and showcasing green building case studies. The Chapter provides a voice to media and public testimony for the overall improvement of our communities. And most importantly, the Chapter is open and accessible to a wide array of interested participants - from students to professionals.

networking with organizations that have implemented sustainable design strategies. My expertise in sustainable design has continued to develop through involvement in the USGBC MN Chapter.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage more education for the commercial real estate community.
