The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is soliciting proposals for the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, which will be held Oct. 5-7 in Toronto. Dedicated to green building, Greenbuild includes three days of educational sessions, speakers, green-building tours, seminars, and networking events.

All proposals must be submitted online through the Greenbuild Website. Faxed or mailed proposals will not be accepted. The deadline for submittals is Jan. 14 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

All educational sessions are 90 min in length, including time for questions and answers. Proposals are being accepted in two formats:

  • A complete session by two or three presenters plus one moderator (a maximum of four participants) for 90 min on a related topic.
  • A partial session by one presenter for 45 min. The Greenbuild Program Committee will assign one additional 45-min session to constitute a 90-min session and will identify a moderator. The committee reserves the right to develop these sessions using a combination of proposals and/or invited presenters.

All proposals must be complete, comprehensive, and deemed relevant and timely to the conference’s audience. The working groups may shorten a presentation, increase and/or reduce the number of presenters, select alternate presenters from among those proposed, and/or combine the submitted presentation with other proposed presentations at its discretion. All presenters will be contacted independently to confirm their submittal.
