Also, if your firm decides to procure National membership, our local Chapter will receive a portion of the membership fees if that firm denotes the West Michigan Chapter as the referring chapter.
What types of membership do you offer?
Various types of membership and costs of joining are listed on our Membership page. Joining as a member of USGBC National depends on type of organization and size and can be found online at USGBC.
What are the differences in National and Chapter Membership?
Individuals are members of Chapters.
Chapter membership allows any individual, regardless of whether or not their employer is a national member, to participate in the chapter and take advantage of local chapter benefits. It also allows individuals to get involved in their community and support local green building efforts. Chapter membership entitles you to discounts on Chapter-led workshops and events, but does not entitle members to discounts on USGBC publications.
Organizations are members of USGBC National.
USGBC National Membership is for corporations or organizations, and all full-time employees of national member companies may utilize their company’s national member benefits and are encouraged to join their local USGBC chapters at a discounted price.
Employees of USGBC National Member companies get discounts on USGBC and LEED® publications.
