Membership FAQ

How much is membership with USGBC – Illinois Chapter?
Chapter dues vary, based on your membership level.

Are dues prorated?
No, dues are paid annually on the anniversary date that you joined.

The memberships listed above seem higher than I remember.  Why was did USGBC – Illinois Chapter increase membership?
As a non-profit organization, USGBC-Illinois relies on both Chapter member dues and a portion of USGBC member dues for nearly a quarter of its revenue.  While the Chapter's scope of services and programming to members has increased multifold since the Chapter's inception in 2002, membership dues have never been increased. Given the state of the economy, the Chapter, like all non-profit organizations and businesses, has been affected by the recession.  In order to continue offering the same level of programming and services, a dues increase was necessary to maintain a balanced budget.
