2022 Call for Conference Sessions - now closed

The call for session proposals for our 2022 Sustainability Symposium is now closed.  

This year's Symposium will take place on Friday, May 6th, 2022 and will showcase  transformative ideas, projects, and opportunities to inspire visionary movement toward a generous, verdant, decarbonized built environment.


Session Criteria 

All sessions must be 1 hour and eligible for at least 1 GBCI, AIA, PHIUS and/or ILFI continuing education unit (CEUs). Please download the Session Submission Guidance document to learn more about what is required to successfully submit a session that qualifies for CEUs.

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 continuing education credits on your behalf. This means you do not need to submit your session for CEU approval prior to submitting a session proposal. 

While diversity and multi-firm representation are not a guarantee of a session’s acceptance, multi-org representation is prioritized because we want sessions to be deep, informative explorations of topics and have found that offering collaborative views is often the best way to achieve this.  Also, equity in racial and gender inclusion is a deeply held value of Green Building United and an essential component of achieving sustainability.

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

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