Government Affairs and Advocacy

The Committee serves as a liaison between USGBC and local municipalities within Los Angeles County and the greater Chapter area, as well as with the regional agencies, the State of California and the Federal government as may pertain to matters of local concern and our Chapter mission. The Committee assists local municipalities, county governments, and other agencies in the development of sustainable strategies and green building policies and programs, and serves as a green building resource and outreach conduit, ultimately resulting in changes to public policy, practices, and building codes.
