Monthly Programs Committee

Monthly Programs Committee

The Monthly Programs Committee (MPC) is a group of dedicated volunteers who assist Urban Green Council in the planning and implementation of our public programs and events, including panel discussions, webinars, case studies and tours. 

To ensure our educational offerings are timely, relevant and engaging, Urban Green Council annually puts out a call to members interested in serving on this volunteer committee. Those chosen represent a great mix of industry professionals who bring a broad range of experience and subject matter expertise to the program planning process.

Responsibilities include attending and actively participating in four committee meetings annually, in which the committee members propose new topics and programs and act as a sounding board for those proposed by Urban Green staff. 

Committee applications for the 2022 Programs Committee are now closed.
