Session submission FAQ

What factors will be used to grade my submission?

Factors for grading submissions include a combination of: innovation/idea, topic relevance, description, diversity of perspectives represented in the speakers, and research/data/case studies that support your content.

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


Can we submit different content in our final submission than originally specified in our original submission?

Please only submit final sessions that match and are updates of your originally outlined submission(s).


Will I need to submit for CEU Approval?

No, however, the information you provide in this form and future questionnaires will be used by GBU staff to submit on your behalf. Please download the Session Submission Guidance document to learn more about what is required to qualify for CEUs. Your sessions must meet minimum CEU qualifications to be reviewed by the Symposium committee.
