The inaugural Nevada Green Schools STEM Summit was held on October 10th and was a resounding statewide success. Held at West Career & Technical Academy, this collaborative community event focused on STEM Education, Sustainability, and Urban Agriculture through Green Schools. Thank you to all 14 of the partner organizations, the dozens of volunteers, and to Vegas PBS for streaming and filming the event in its entirety. USGBC Nevada was proud to be a part of this impactful event and we look forward to another fantastic year in 2016 focusing on the many benefits of green buildings, local food and healthy, high-performing Green Schools!

Welcome to the U.S. Green Building Council -
Nevada Chapter website.

Rick Van Diepen

Welcome! Thanks for visiting the U.S. Green Building Council Nevada Chapter website. I am honored and excited to serve this great organization as board president this year because we have some really fantastic plans for the year ahead and I’m amazed at the amount of talent and passion that have been assembled on our board and committees!

I’ve been involved with USGBC for years and I really encourage you to come to one of our many events because I can promise that you will be amazed at the amount of energy and enthusiasm in the room every time. There is something really special about this organization and all I can say is Give Us A Try!

The Nevada economy is clearly on the rebound and the green building industry has continued to expand as building owners and operators see the value of higher occupancy and lease rates, higher resale value, and lower operating costs. With a growing membership nearing 300 strong, we are constantly looking for ways to offer more value to our members as well as to our valued Friends of the Chapter sponsor partners.

The USGBC Nevada Chapter is also reaching out to the community and forming partnerships to work on issues that affect the economic well-being and quality of life for all Nevadans; from advocacy efforts in support of energy efficiency, renewable energy and green financing, to educational and outreach programs on LEED professional certification, Green Schools, the Nevada chapter is truly striving to become the trusted advisor on all things green in the Silver State.

I hope you will consider visiting us at our next impactful monthly program and if you see the benefit that hundreds of others already have I hope that you will also consider becoming a member. Our membership is one of the best values for professional development and industry networking and it entitles you to large discounts on LEED classes and educational monthly breakfast programs. All this and you'll be helping promote a healthier world for our kids and grandkids in the process - how can you lose!

Join us wont you?
