Building Teams and Team Building

Committees are the backbone of the BCxA. When you join a committee, you open up your potential for outstanding professional growth, unexpected career opportunities, and even lifelong connections. Your voluntary time and knowledge are valuable resources for the future of the building industry.
Committee activities advance advocacy and technical knowledge within the industry, work to develop guidelines and standards, provide education and training, and connect BCxA members to career options and choices.

Want to see if a committee fits you? Get in touch with the Committee Chair of your choice, below.

Advocacy Committee

The Advocacy Committee (AC) purpose is to scan the horizon for potential industry and policy-related threats and opportunities for commissioning providers, on behalf of our members.  If you are interested in being a voice for the commissioning profession and to ensure that the practice of commissioning is accurately represented at the city, county, state, national and international level this is the committee to join.  Members will be responsible for reviewing potential new or updated buildings codes, standards and legislative policy.  The committee will report to the Executive Director and the International Board of Directors.

Membership Development Committee (MDC)

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

Whether an advanced provider or a newcomer to commissioning, everyone can use more “how to.” PDC members collaborate to define, review and recommend topics that help providers apply specialized skills, new areas of competence, effective practices, and improve performance. Working with authors and presenters, the PDC helps to shape and schedule technical and market-focused webinars, and other educational offering from BCxA and the BCxA University.
