Submit an Education Proposal

Submissions open September 18 - November 17.

Illinois Green Alliance's Programs Committee is currently seeking proposals to enhance our 2024 educational programs calendar, including proposals for educational sessions, suggested speakers, and technology/service spotlights.

We’re interested in:

  • 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.

Share your industry knowledge with a large community
of invested green building professionals!

The Illinois Green Alliance Programs Committee develops and presents education programs for the green building community (building owners, managers, engineers, designers, occupants, residents, and more), that increase industry knowledge on the path to net zero.

Illinois Green is seeking education proposals in a variety of topics including but not limited to...

Case studies & Building Tours

Path to Net Zero

Financing & Funding

Electrification & Decarbonization

Equity & Community Impacts

Tech & Innovation


Submissions open September 18 - November 17.

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 Programs Committee will assist in diversifying speakers if a panel includes multiple speakers from one company/affiliation.

Proposals are submitted through the portal below, including a description of the discussion topic and information about suggested speakers. Proposals will be reviewed by the Illinois Green Programs Committee volunteers and staff.

Accepted programs are subject to alteration as the committee sees fit. If your proposal is selected, we will work with your team to make any recommended adjustments and to find a suitable date for the event to be held online or in-person in 2024.
