Branch Volunteer Leadership and Opportunities

The USGBC South Florida Region 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 Gary Pirtle or Lee Cooke.

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.

On Saturday June 4, Habitat For Humanity dedicated four LEED Homes to families in Pompano Beach. Several members of the USGBC Broward Branch were in attendance. The recipient families were extremely grateful and thrilled to be moving into their new homes. The Broward Branch will continue to partner with Habitat for Humanity and our USGBC South Florida Region volunteers encourage you to participate in future builds, too.  For further information:  Gary Pirtle.
