USGBC's volunteer network plays a critical role in advancing healthier, more sustainable and more prosperous built environments in communities around the globe. 

This June, at the Convergence conference, USGBC will celebrate and provide professional development for members, volunteers and partners.  Convergence provides an opportunity to reflect on accomplishments over the past year and re-energize for the work still to be done. Convergence 2016 will focus on "Building Leaders. Building Markets. Measuring Mission Impact.” 

USGBC is excited to offer Convergence attendees the “LEED and Community Collaborative Workshop” this year on Wednesday, June 22. This interactive education and feedback session will feature presentations from LEED volunteer technical experts, followed by guided discussions with workshop attendees and staff. This session has been approved by GBCI for 3 LEED-specific (BD+C, O+M, ID+C) CE hours

All Convergence attendees are invited to attend the workshop. Over the course of the morning, volunteer representatives from the six LEED Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) will describe how LEED v4 credit categories and LEED Dynamic Plaque performance categories address new construction, existing buildings and ongoing performance. These volunteer leaders contribute hundreds of hours annually in the development and maintenance of the LEED rating system. 

After each presentation, workshop attendees will discuss and explore presentation content with the LEED volunteers. These discussions offer the opportunity to identify key concepts and common themes to better communicate the goals and value of LEEDv4 and green building to local markets across the country. 

More information about the collaborative workshop is available on the Convergence website. Don’t miss this chance to connect with members of USGBC’s diverse volunteer groups, learn about LEED v4 and the LEED Dynamic Plaque and earn Continuing Education (CE) hours for credential maintenance.
