Join the Sustainability Movement! Branch Volunteer and Leadership Opportunities
The USGBC South Florida Chapter is a volunteer-governed and a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization. The driving force behind our impact as a Branch, a Chapter and as an international organization is our community of volunteers. Together, we form a dedicated group of intelligent, passionate and respected individuals who are committed to transforming the way our communities and buildings are designed, built and operated through adoption of green-building practices and principles. Although our Branch is focused on our local community, we form part of a larger global network of more than 14,000 member organizations and 162,000 LEED accredited professionals (learn more here).
As your fellow volunteers and as leaders of our local Miami Branch of the South Florida Chapter, we are dedicated to creating meaningful opportunities for:
education concerning green building
engaging with like-minded professionals accross industries as well as leaders that drive change within our communities
empowerment of each member to create and lead initiatives that support and complement our mission
If you are interested in volunteering at the Miami-Dade Branch, contact Denaye Hinds.
