Illinois Green Alliance’s Programs Committee is excited to announce a call for education program proposals to enhance our 2022 event calendar!

Illinois Green seeks to increase industry knowledge on the path to net zero buildings and are looking for programs that empower others to take action with us. Our programs strive to connect all interested in the green building community (building owners, managers, engineers, designers, occupants, residents, and more) to create programs around:

– Shared best practices around high performance and healthy buildings
– Challenges and successes that move the green building market and policies toward a net zero future in Illinois
– Removing barriers to implementation of building decarbonization
– Demonstrating how high performance technology and building methods are possible anywhere

We encourage sessions to call on a diverse panel of experts and promote dialogue about the subject matter between panelists and audience members (or alternatively, attendees).

The submission process is similar to that used for conferences. Completed programs are submitted through the portal below, including a description of the discussion topic and information about all speakers. Sessions submitted through the Call for Proposals will supplement the custom programs developed by the Programs Committee.

Proposals will be reviewed by the Illinois Green Programs Committee volunteers and staff. If your program is selected, we will work with your team to find a suitable date for the event to be held online or in person. At this time, all education submissions are being evaluated for virtual presentations.

When it is feasible again to host in-person events, programs scheduled for those time frames will be notified of the opportunity to present in-person.

Deadline for proposal submission is November 24 @ 11:59 PM.
