North Carolina's green building councils may merge
Three North Carolina chapters of the U.S. Green Building Council are considering merging into one.
The Charlotte Region Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council may merge with two other North Carolina chapters to form one statewide group.
Charlotte members will vote on the merger at their regular monthly USGBC program on June 26. The meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. at Byron’s South End.
If approved, the Charlotte chapter will absorb the North Carolina Triangle and the Piedmont Triad NC chapters. The surviving group will carry the U.S. Green Building Council-Charlotte Region Chapter name.
Emily Scofield, executive director of the nonprofit’s Charlotte region chapter, supports the consolidation.
“I am an advocate for the state chapter for three primary reasons: membership growth, strengthened advocacy and increased partnership value,” she says. “Part of our mission is to transform the way communities are designed, built and operated. Becoming a state chapter will help us achieve this.”
