Volunteer

If you're interested in volunteering with Urban Green Council, email us here.

Urban Green Council depends on the support and expertise of volunteers who contribute to our development and operations. Over the years, many of our volunteers have become acknowledged leaders in the green building community. We periodically solicit the expertise of our volunteers for the development of our educational programs and other major policy initiatives through committees.

Events & Educational Programs

There is always a need for individuals to help out with the logistics of holding programs and events—including set-up, guest registration and ushering. By volunteering, you gain free admission to great educational and networking events.

Monthly Programs Committee

Urban Green Council's Monthly Programs Committee is comprised of a group of motivated volunteers who play an important role in the planning and implementation of our monthly programs. The Monthly Programs Committee volunteer positions are a singular opportunity for individuals to influence our educational content and play a central role in advancing best practices and innovation in New York City.  Applications for new members are accepted every year in November.   

Membership Committee

Created in 2014 to help take our member activities to the next level and grow our numbers, the Membership Committee has the authority to modify and improve current events (like our quarterly member receptions), create new ones and decide how to best allocate the membership outreach budget. 

Emerging Professionals Leadership

Joining the Emerging Professionals Committee is an opportunity to lead and shape a coalition of young professionals in the green building industry by organizing regular monthly forums and special events. Positions include Co-Chair, Communications Coordinator and Programs Committee Members. Elections are held every year in November. 

Photographers

We are seeking a committed group of photographers to record our various educational programs and networking events. View our full collection of event photos here!

Every year we hold our Annual Service Awards at one of our Member Receptions to recognize the extraordinary contributions of Urban Green Council's most dedicated, skilled and experienced volunteers. See past service award winners here.
