What are Emerging Professionals (EP)?
EP is a vibrant, community-based program that focuses on professionals who are new to the green building industry and the sustainability movement. This program is administered by local communities through their EP committees. Under the USGBC community membership policy, communities offer a single membership with discounts for full-time students and for full-time employees of USGBC national member companies. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
What is the difference between USGBC Students and Emerging Professionals?
USGBC Students is an initiative geared toward making American college campuses more sustainable. Whereas EP is primarily targeted at young professionals who wish to network in the sustainability sector and grow their careers, USGBC Students gives college students a chance to engage in the USGBC mission while completing their studies. USGBC Students are also encouraged to engage with their local communities to discover opportunities to volunteer and network with more seasoned professionals.
How do I start an Emerging Professional (EP) committee?
Individual communities organize their own EP committees. Please contact your local community about how to get involved with its existing EP committee. If your community does not have an EP committee, email email@example.com, and we will work with you on opportunities to engage with your local market.
