Committees

Building Teams and Team Building

BCxA committees are made up of volunteers who – one by one and as a whole – work to make the built environment better.

The time is now to join with colleagues to help create the future of the BCxA, spreading the word and implementing activities that support your professional growth, and your Association, as the most trusted resource for commissioning education and advocacy.

As a voluntary member of BCxA committee initiatives, you’ll get professional recognition, enhance your commissioning role, and expand your network of peers and business opportunities.

What attracts you to the BCxA? How would you like to add value? What’s changing in your world that you’d like to share with your profession? We have a committee for that!  All committees are currently looking for recruits to help fulfill the Association’s goals in 2020.


Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee is composed of BCxA members who volunteer to act on behalf of the Association to (a) identify and evaluate new or revised potential legislation, codes, standards and policies that may affect the practice of building commissioning, and (b) establish and maintain liaison relationships with organizations considered by the BCxA Board of Directors to be industry allies, market and/or technology partners.

If you are interested in being a voice for the commissioning profession and ensuring that the practice of commissioning is accurately represented at city, county, state, national and international levels, this is the committee to join.

Awards Committee

Interested in helping to recognize leaders in Cx and projects that follow best practices?  Then this NEW committee for 2020 is where you can offer your support.

This committee is responsible for the development and management of all BCxA Awards. The mission of this committee is to evaluate how best to recognize and support the individuals, companies and/or programs that are outstanding in their practice, support and promotion of excellence in building commissioning.

The committee also establishes awards for those in BCxA who have gone above and beyond on behalf of the Association. Committee members develop criteria for awards and the rating process to select awardees. This  committee recommends development of new and retiring awards to the BCxA Board of Directors.

Membership Development Committee (MDC)

Nothing is more important to a professional association than providing value to its members. The Membership Development Committee (MDC) strives to communicate and manage the criteria for membership, and institute programs for development and retention of members.
