Session Criteria (applies to both conferences) 

All sessions must be 1 hour and eligible for GBCI and AIA continuing education units (CEUs). Please read over our continuing education guidance sheet for information on CEU requirements. The information you submit in the application is what will be used for the CEU submission. If your session is selected, Green Building United will submit your session for GBCI and AIA credits. This means you do not need to submit your session for CEU approval prior to submitting a session proposal. 

If you have any questions, please contact Leah Wirgau, Education and Engagement Director at lwirgau@greenbuildingunited.org. If you wish to submit presentations and/or additional relevant session materials, please send a DropBox link or .zip file to Leah.

If your session is selected, you will be required to submit course materials in the form of a presentation or slide deck, in advance of the conference.
