GBCI is seeking to fill three open seats on the Credentialing Steering Committee (CSC), the governing body for GBCI’s professional credentials. The three seats represent credential specializations in:

  1. LEED Building Design and Construction
  2. LEED homes
  3. LEED Interior Design and Construction

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. PST on May 16.

The steering committee

GBCI administers a suite of credentials that validate and recognize those who demonstrate competencies related to environmental sustainability and human health as they relate to the built environment. The credentialing programs are governed by the CSC, a body with balanced composition that represents the diverse body of stakeholders who hold its professional credentials.

Each seat represents a different industry sector and GBCI credential. Members contribute their thoughts and experiences from the field and work together with GBCI staff to steer the direction and development of the GBCI credentials. To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a CSC member, please review the CSC Charter.

The two-year term for these three open seats begins on October 1, 2018, and ends on September 30, 2020.

Meetings typically occur between 4 and 5 p.m. EST on the second Thursday of each month and are held remotely via WebEx.

GBCI will review survey respondents to identify a group of potential candidates, who will be notified and asked to confirm interest in these positions. Then, their biographical information will be presented to the CSC, which will vote to recommend one committee member for each seat to be approved by the GBCI Board of Directors.
