Emerging Professionals

GBA-LOGO-2010_EP (1)
Emerging Professionals (EPs) are the energetic and dynamic leaders of tomorrow’s green building movement.  GBA’s Emerging Professionals committee enables individuals early in their sustainability careers to be a force for progress within their communities by providing a forum for networking and education.

Emerging Professionals are in the early stage of their careers and interested in or already working in the green building industry (generally under 35 years of age).  Graduate students are encouraged to become involved, while undergraduate students are encouraged to engage with existing green building and sustainability networks at their college or university.

Get involved by attending an Emerging Professionals event or by joining the Emerging Professionals Committee, which works with GBA staff members to determine the direction of the group and plan EP-related events. Email us if you’re interested in serving on the committee.

To be a member of the Emerging Professionals group, just become a GBA member at any level (either through your organization or individually at the Professional or Advocate level) and email us to get on the EP distribution list.
