  • Inspirational Content: Greenbuild is calling for education that not only imparts knowledge but inspires action. Proposals are evaluated, in part, on whether or not it offers innovative or inspirational content to green building professionals.
  • Rating System-Specific Sessions: We are seeking sessions that teach attendees about the current versions of the rating systems by providing specific, detailed information and guidance about the credit intents and requirements, supplemented with real world experiences with theLEED, WELL and SITES rating systems. Our goal is to provide attendees with at least fifteen (15)general continuing education (CE) hours per year toward credential maintenance, including the opportunity to earn three (3) rating system-specific hours. Please consult this resource for guidance on how to develop a rating system-specific session
