Review for Institute for Baubiologie & Ecology, Clearwater, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteer position with the institute to to help oversee the on-line courses & in-person seminars. I help with editing, proof reading & course content. I also am part of a committee to plan future seminars for graduated & returning consultants so they can re-certify their standings with the institute. The main goal of the institute is to educate the public on the health impact o the built environment & what to do about it.

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

I have attended 3 seminars in various locations. all the instructors were knowledgeable in there professions & instruct on their topics. The course material helps to keep the information in with you after the hands on experience.

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

Donations, donations, donations... The institute does wonderful things & the volunteers are wonderful, but it still takes money to keep the institute going & be able to put on the different seminars & conferences.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have met many wonderful people & shared lots of information on building ecology related topics. That I find is the most valuable part of this organization, sharing the experience. Then we become a larger extended family because of it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very knowledgeable. Kind & caring. Also dedicated to there profession & cause!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Really & truly help to change the built environment as we know it. People are getting sick & the doctors can't figure out why. But building biologists have inside on what might be causing the condition. Clean up the home & get healthy.

Ways to make it better...

We need more volunteers. Its a lot of work for a few to do. So volunteer today & change peoples lives.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Logistics. It has become a virtual world. Some material can be learned online, but some material needs to be taught in person. coordinating the seminars is one of the biggest challenges.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I respect the dedication & hard work that has kept the institute going for 20 years. I personally want to thank the ZieHe's for starting this dream & keeping it going through the years. Without them I would not be apart of this.
