We grumbled when GBCI overhauled the LEED AP program, introducing specialities, fees, and difficult-to-navigate credential maintenance. Is this the silver lining?
Today and at Greenbuild Toronto we stand and applaud the first class of LEED AP Fellows--the top tier of the LEED Accredited Professionals. Today, GBCI announced the 2011 class, the first of many deserving sustainability professionals to receive this honor. Yes, we may continue to grumble about the hoops you have to go through to get this honor, but apparently those hoops were worth it for at least 34 individuals, and from our long experience with many of them, we know they deserve it.
