Join the USGBC-Illinois Chapter for a LEED v4 Technical Update and learn how to be involved in the process.

USGBC’s LEED green building rating system has been a significant driver for market transformation since its debut in 2000.  USGBC is currently developing the version of LEED (v4) for release next year.  This session will provide an update of the development process, a general overview of the technical changes proposed and information of specific interest to the chapter. It will also include an early look at supporting tools and resources for the LEED v4 program.

This presentation has been approved by GBCI for 1.5 General or LEED-Specific BD&C, ID&C, O+M hours.
