My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for U S Green Building Council- Minnesota Chapter Inc, Minneapolis, MN, USA
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.
