Seeking Candidates for our 2017 Board of Directors
Make an Impact!
The USGBC Illinois is pleased to announce a call for applicants for the 6 seats open for the 2017-18 Board of Directors. Participation on the USGBC Illinois board is a unique opportunity for local industry leaders to continue the Chapter mission that advances buildings and communities that are sustainable, prosperous and healthy. In particular, the Chapter is now focused on its new carbon drawdown epic challenge.
The USGBC Illinois Board is a diverse group of professionals composed of industry leaders from all aspects of the building industry. Diversity in interest and expertise is strongly encouraged, as is experience with community outreach in Chicago – the first focus for our drawdown strategies. Board service offers the opportunity to grow personally and professionally, to develop meaningful relationships with other passionate and motivated individuals, and to make a difference in your local community. In return, board members are responsible for Chapter strategic guidance and support, attending meetings and representing the Chapter, and contributing to the Chapter’s financial health through sponsorship development and other revenue-generating activities.
Nominees will go through an election process in this fall. To start, please complete a nomination form no later than September 9, 2016. Once we have received your nomination form(s), individuals from the Chapter elections committee will follow up with nominees to explain next steps.
