Join the GBCI Credentialing Steering Committee as a public member

Caitlin McGrellis

Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) is seeking one individual to fill one open seat on the Credentialing Steering Committee, the governing body for GBCI’s professional credentials.

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. These credentialing programs are governed by the Credentialing Steering Committee (CSC), a body with balanced composition that represents the diverse stakeholders who hold its professional credentials. Each seat represents a different industry sector and GBCI credential. Credentials include LEED Green Associate, LEED AP BD+C, LEED AP Homes, LEED AP ID+C, LEED AP ND, LEED AP O+M, SITES AP and WELL AP.

During this call, we are seeking a member to fill the seat of a Public Member. This individual offers a relevant perspective (such as that of an employer, building owner or other industry stakeholder), but is not a GBCI credential holder.

The application period will close on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 5 p.m. PST.

Meetings typically occur from 4–5 p.m. Eastern Time 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. These potential candidates will be notified of their consideration and asked to confirm interest in this position. If interested, their biographical information will be presented to the CSC, who will vote to recommend one committee member to be approved by the GBCI Board of Directors.
