What is the difference between National Membership and Chapter Membership?
"National Membership" offers full access to the National USGBC Website , educational tools, and business directory. This choice is often picked by those with a business they want to promote at a National Level and want access to many the CEUS and resources that USGBC National provides.
We earn 10% of National Member Dues, from those who sign up within our region.
"Chapter Membership" and "Sponsorship" are for the local chapter members to gain access to the local resources that the Central Coast Green Building Council offers such as: Educational opportunities, local code/rebate information, access to local advocacy opportunities, and is ultimately your connection to the green building community at a local level, specificially within our tri-county region. Chapter memberships/sponsorships earn 100% back into the Local chapter funding.
Ultimately, if you want both local and national benefits, you must sign up as both a national member via USGBC.org and local member via ccgreenbuilding.org separately.
As a sponsor for the local CCGBC how is my donation utilized?
At CCGBC we have a board of 12 volunteers and we have two part-time paid staff who manage all of the administrative duties of our organization. A large portion of donations go to our staffers to be able to coordinate all that CCGBC offers to it's members.
The rest of the funding goes directly into the events themselves, covering costs such as food, printing, paying guest speakers, creating take-away educational material...etc. If you are explicitly a Green Schools Sponsor, then 100% of the funds go into efforts of the Green Schools Program , both for staffing and to the schools projects themselves.
If you are already a member or a sponsor and would like to change your level the steps are:
1. Sign into your account
2. Go to your 'Member Profile' on the top right corner
3. Look to 'Membership' then hit 'Change' and follow the prompts.
*If you are a member on a personal level, but you want to be a sponsor, then you must create another account for your 'Sponsorship' account. This is because this account functions differently than a normal member and has bundle memberships associated with it.
Don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
CCGBC Thanks you for your support of our Mission!
