What does it mean to be a Member of the Guild?
Guilds of the trade were established in the 14th Century to protect common interests, share best practices, and provide privilege to tradesman. A guild is guided by experienced and confirmed experts in their field and our Board of Directors represent a diverse set of expertise in green building practice and policy in the building industry.
Member Pledge- Guild members make the following pledge when they sign up to become members of the Guild.
As a member of the Colorado Green Building Guild I do hereby make a pledge to share best practices and privilege with fellow Guild members and take into consideration the social and environmental impacts of my business practices. I further commit to take action to continue to raise my awareness, attain the highest standards currently established, and further my industry by sharing successes realized through my relationship with the Guild.
I dedicate my time to share the best practices known internationally by 3rd party certified standards based on merit, cost, consideration and consumption and devote conscious effort to continue to evolve the practice beyond today, for future generations, through collaboration with my peers at the Guild.
I acknowledge that I am an integral part of the evolution in best building practice. I understand the tangible and philanthropic benefits and with integrity am deserving receipt of the honor and responsibilities, both inherent and implied, to be a part of the Colorado Green Building Guild.
The value of being a member today carries benefits that are realized through privileges, discounts, education, access to strong leadership and exclusive connections to resources, the opportunity to create deep lasting purposeful connections, and collective collaboration to serve the community at large. Members are invited to be a part what began as the nation’s first green building guild as we expand to reach across the state of Colorado. Additionally, members realize immeasurable intangible organizational acknowledgments and have a platform to collaborate ideas and secure exclusive resources to co-create a shared vision of social and environmental responsibility.
