How to Join
Companies and Organizations:
Identify your company as either a Green Building Advocate or Green Building Specialist, then sign up based on your organization's annual revenue. If you are an existing CaGBC member and would like to confirm your membership status please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an employee of a CaGBC Member company (Green Building Specialist or Green Building Advocate) your Chapter membership fee is complimentary. Please make sure your CaGBC profile is linked to your employer and your free Chapter membership will be activated. If you don't know the current status of your company's membership, please browse our list of current members here.
If you are a current Chapter member and an employee of a CaGBC national member company your membership will automatically renew at the end of your term for FREE.
If you are not an employee of a CaGBC Member company, join here for just $100 a year and benefit from your Chapter network right away.
If your employer is no longer a Specialist or Advocate member of the CaGBC (i.e. their membership has lapsed) you will not be able to claim your free Chapter membership and will not have access to Specialist or
Advocate member benefits. You can join your local Chapter as an individual or contact your company's membership administrator and ask them to renew.
For specific instructions on how to claim your free Chapter membership, refer to Membership FAQ #4.
Emerging Green Builders (EGB)

Join here to access all the benefits of membership. Proof of eligibility will be required. Valid ID includes: Birth certificate, valid driver's license, student card or graduation certificate.
If you are an EGB employed by a national member company, your Chapter membership fee is complimentary. If you don't know the current status of your company's membership, please browse our list of current members here.
