Branch Volunteer Leadership and Opportunities

The USGBC South Florida Chapter is a volunteer-governed and a volunteer-driven nonprofit organization.   Our volunteer family is our lifeblood.  Our volunteers' contributions are priceless. They are smart and passionate, fun and tireless, giving and successful.  And they know that their actions have the potential to make a huge difference in our South Florida community -- now and in the future -- by helping educate, enlighten and empower our region to adopt an approach to building that is both ecologically and economically sustainable. 

And they have a heckuva lot of fun while making industry connections and new friends while educating members and friends!

If you are interested in volunteering at the Broward Branch, contact Tammy Cook-Weedon or Jesse Miller.

History of the Broward Branch

The first official meeting of a Broward group tied to the new USGBC South Florida Chapter took place in July 2006.  The meeting also served as the unofficial embracing of "branching" out further north (from the Chapter's Miami-centric beginnings) through coordinated events and programs.  

The Broward Branch was officially created by the Chapter's Board of Directors in 2007.  Since its early beginnings, the Branch has always fielded some of the Chapter's strongest programs and most passionate and involved volunteers.  

Neighborhood Design

It was a very informative and entertaining evening as we learned about the successful Downtown Culinary Arts District with Oakland Park Mayor John Adornato III, Ray Lubomski and John Albee.
