First Wednesday Webinar Series
The Evolution of LEED: Insights into Rating System Updates: Regionalization
Since 2009, LEED has awarded extra points to projects that achieve specific credits that address the unique environmental priorities of an area. These Regional Priority credits (RPCs) are existing LEED credits selected from the entire LEED rating system and given priority status. This webinar session will explore the process by which USGBC collaborates with its chapter volunteers to select RPCs, highlight opportunities for involvement and discuss key updates in the process from LEED 2009 to LEED 2012.
Featuring LEED Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Committee members – LEED experts in the field – this series will highlight a number of credit categories undergoing important evolution. Upon completion of this webinar series, attendees will have the information needed to be prepared for integrating these updates to LEED into their professional practice.
Each session in this series is approved for 1.5 hours of LEED Specific (BD+C, ID+C, O+M, HOMES, and ND) GBCI hours as well as 1.5 AIA/CES LU hours. Participants must be present to view the webinar and receive credit for attendance. Drinks and snacks will be sponsored by GH Phipps.
