We appreciate your support of our mission and goals—and couldn’t achieve them without you! Here are a few of GBA’s recent accomplishments, made possible in part by YOUR membership:

NEW! Automatic Reporting of Continuing Education Hours

  • As a member benefit, we are now offering automatic reporting of Continuing Education hours to USGBC for approved GBA events. When you pre-register online, enter your GBCI number, attend the event, and we’ll take care of the rest! CEUs will be reported by GBA on a monthly basis.

Pittsburgh 2030 District

  • Increased 2030 team from three to five people
  • Expanded into Oakland, making Pittsburgh the only 2030 District in the country with two boundaries; 80% of Oakland’s square footage is already committed to 2030 goals
  • The Downtown District blew past the 10% energy reduction goal

Green & Healthy Schools Academy

  • Graduated the first GHSA schools cohort and is starting a second cohort (including a West Virginia school!)
  • Added a new staff member, doubling the program’s capacity and increasing its ability to tackle health topics
  • Began offering GHSA workshops to any regional school

Knowledge Network

  • Expanded offerings and extended outreach to more people thanks to our new role as a formal U.S. Green Building Council Education Partner
  • Offered quality member-only events like a river cruise and behind-the-scenes Google office tour, as well as discounts to other events such as sustainable development site tours, specialty courses, and countless workshops
  • Presented higher-level technical education events
  • Helped more than a dozen people prepare for and successfully achieve their LEED Green Associate credentials
