Join Us

Individual members and representatives of Member Organizations are invited to participate in our Green Umbrella Action Teams. Our Teams bring together people who share an interest in a particular environmental topic: Energy, Waste Reduction, Transportation, Greenspace, Water, Local Food and Outdoors. 

Teams meet monthly to share best practices, exchange information, and implement strategies to promote sustainability in their field and drive progress on Action Team 2020 Goals. It is a great way to network, learn, and contribute. To learn more about participating with an Action Team, please click on the team of your interest and contact the Team Chair for membership information and to learn when the next meeting will be held.
