Your vote in the USGBC Board of Directors election will help shape the future of our movement.

Each year the USGBC member community has a special opportunity to influence USGBC's future leadership, governance and strategic direction by electing its national Board members. Your vote will influence key decisions about how USGBC serves you, our members, educates the industry and advances the mission.

The Election Period for the 2012 Board of Directors is now open through Nov. 1. To those who have already voted, thank you! For those who haven’t, this is your chance to add your voice to those of the more than 14,000 USGBC organizational members and cast your vote today!

The election period runs for 30 days, and closes on November 1st. USGBC By-Laws require that a minimum of 10% of USGBC member organizations vote. That’s why it’s especially important for you to take a moment and cast your vote now.

This year 11 candidates are running for four open Board seats in the following categories, each to a three-year term:

Designer of Buildings

Environmental Nonprofit Advocate Large-Scale Manufacturer
Urban/Regional Planner

USGBC provides for proportional voting, so every full-time employee of a USGBC member organization is eligible to vote. By casting your vote today, you will ensure that the USGBC Board continues to represent our organization’s diverse, strategic interests.

Cast your vote today! The election will be open through Nov. 1, 2011.

Thank you for making a difference, and making USGBC the best it can be!
