The Emerging Professionals of Urban Green Council represent a coalition of young professionals in the New York City area intent on developing opportunities in the green building movement for future leaders.
EP is a programmatic committee supported by a core Leadership group and several sub-committees. These young professionals work to create programming for New York City's community of emerging leaders in green building, and also participate on the national level through U.S. Green Building Council's EP iniatives such as the Natural Talent Design Competition and the EP Academy. They host a monthly educational forum on green building, develop community-building social events, and arrange green building tours in New York City.
