Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are integral to Green Building United.

Every year volunteers help achieve our mission, and there are a variety of ways to engage with our organization. Opportunities include serving on a committee, helping with events, and donating time to a project. If you have volunteer ideas, we'd love to hear them; contact Leah Wirgau, Education & Engagement Director. Note that some volunteer opportunities require individuals to have individual membership.

Committees typically meet in-person and/or by-phone on a monthly or quarterly basis and are a great way to dive into a specific focus area of the organization. See committee opportunities below.

Our major events (Sustainability Symposium, New Gravity Housing Conference, and Groundbreakers Awards) would not run as smoothly without the help of our volunteers. Opportunities may include: 

  • Reviewing session or project submissions 
  • Coordinating conference tours 
  • Facilitating day-of in conference rooms or at registration 
  • Supporting outreach and development efforts 


If interested in volunteering for one of these events, please contact Margaret Salamon. Other event volunteer opportunities are announced in our e-newsletter as they become available.
