Certification Institute Launches ‘LEED Fellow’ Program to Recognize Green-Building Proficiency

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has launched the LEED Fellow program, created to recognize “exceptional contributions to the green-building community and significant professional achievement within the rapidly growing community of LEED Professionals.”

GBCI provides third-party confirmation that specific criteria related to LEED building certification and LEED professional credentialing have been met.

“LEED Fellows will constitute an elite class of the world’s most distinguished green-building professionals,” said Beth Holst, GBCI vice president of credentialing.  “Candidates are nominated by their peers, and the selection will be based on their body of work and the way it has contributed to advancing the field of green building.”
 
In order to be eligible for the LEED Fellow designation, an individual must be nominated, either by himself or herself or by a peer. The current nomination period is open now Jan. 7, 2011. Nominees must have 10 years of green-building experience and be LEED APs (accredited professionals) who have held the LEED AP credential for at least eight cumulative years.
 
GBCI said the LEED Fellow program “is the result of more than two years of extensive research that helped GBCI define what it means to be at the forefront of the green building industry,” the organization said. The findings were synthesized into five mastery elements in which LEED Fellows are expected to demonstrate expert-level knowledge and experience: Technical Proficiency; Education and Mentoring; Leadership; Commitment and Service; and Advocacy.
 
The 2011 class of LEED Fellows will be announced at the U.S. Green Building Council’s Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, scheduled for October 2011 in Toronto. More information is available at www.gbci.org/fellow.
 
Holst said the launch of the LEED Fellow program “is a tremendous opportunity to celebrate those individuals who have made laudable efforts to propel us toward the accomplishment of our mission of green buildings for all within a generation.”

GBCI in early 2009 assumed responsibility for administering the LEED building certification program for the more than 36,000 commercial projects seeking third-party verification of compliance with the LEED green-building rating system. More information: www.gbci.org.
