MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Member Seal 150xWe are actively working to give our members the support they need in implementing and growing the market for sustainable buildings, technologies and services. Given these uncertain times with COVID-19 we are discounting memberships 30% and offering payment plans for members. Contact Carol@ecobuilding.org for more details.

Benefits of a membership include:

  • Professional & any level business memberships have access to the new BRIC Network (Business Resiliency In Community). This network was created in light of the COVID-19 public health crisis that has led to uncertain times for our design & building members as the Governor gave his initial Stay-at-Home order. This has greatly impacted our business members and highlighted our need to respond to our need to build resiliency in our businesses. This professional only forum is a safe space to discuss tough topics related to cash-flow, employees, trade partners, work-flow, real estate market, biz and HELOC loans, supply chain, and any other concerns our business owners have during challenging times. It’s a place to creatively problem solve, share resources and brainstorm how each of individually and collectively move forward.
  • Free Admission to Monthly Education Meetings:  Meet other green building professionals and interested homeowners, and exchange ideas, information, and resources. Visit our Events Calendar for a full listing of upcoming events in your area.
  • Discounts on Admission to other Guild Events:  Members get a 10-50% discount on registration to other Guild Events (varies), such as our Green Building Slams, annual Green Building Summit, NW Green Home Tour, ShiftBuilding Symposia and other events.
  • Community Events and Involvement:  Members get involved at the local chapter level to participate in, sponsor, or help lead these terrific community events.
  • Voice for Advocacy:  The Guild is emerging as a leading voice of advocacy for transforming the built environment, for buildings as climate action, and for equitable access to healthy high-performance homes. Now is the time to develop solutions for healthy and efficient living opportunities for all Northwest residents.
  • Green Pages Listing:  Professional and higher members receive a search-engine optimized, link & logo enabled profile in our online Green Pages directory. It’s the only regional, free-to-the-public, multi-media publication dedicated exclusively to advancing sustainable building professionals, techniques, practices, and products, where many consumers go to select contractors, designers, and other building professionals for project teams.
  • Project Spotlights:  Highlight your company’s green building practices and projects, by putting the spotlight on your latest accomplishment – a whole building or specific systems, materials or other elements of the project.  Project spotlights also show up in your green pages listing!
  • Website Exposure:  Our website averages 3,500 visitors a month! When you post Project SpotlightsEvents, and Member Articles through our Member Center, you are contributing to an ever-expanding pool of online green building resources, sought by visitors near and far. The content you post will give you and your business a much stronger presence in the green building and green trades community.
  • Partner to Grow your Business:  Guild members have pioneered unique business relationships that can be described as “co-opetition” or cooperating to compete.  Do what we do:  Collaborate to reach new customers and markets.
