USGBC community advancement is all about bringing together our volunteers and leaders throughout the country, and a big part Convergence 2015 has been focused on our chapter network evolution.

Monday's activities were volunteerism-focused, and Tuesday’s activities celebrated strategic discussions, which included opening remarks from Donnel Baird, CEO of BlocPower, which works with American inner cities to create jobs through clean energy projects. We also heard from the newly formed integrated chapters about their experiences in this developing role within the larger organization.

The day’s breakout program included updates and strategic discussions for community volunteers and leaders. The sessions covered a variety of topics, from discussions about the new USGBC Global Engagement Collaborative and statewide green schools coalitions to storytelling tools and tips and community partnerships.
