#ThisIsNIBS: Dr. Keith Porter, Professor, University of Colorado-Boulder and Principal, SPA Risk LLC
Collaboration is the foundation of the National Institute of Building Sciences. NIBS brings together representatives of government, the professions, industry, and labor and consumer interests to identify and find solutions to the challenges in the places we live, work and play.
Members are invited to have a seat at the table where these discussions take place—they collaborate to develop and implement technical and procedural improvements within NIBS’ councils, committees and programs. Together, NIBS members are working together to build a better tomorrow.
Our members are made up of individuals, public and private sector organizations, non-profits and local, state and federal government officials. These members play a wide range of roles within the built environment.
I have been looking for ways to integrate myself into the industry and get to know people – other executives – and I have not had the opportunity to do that like I have once I became a member of the National Institute of Building Sciences.

CEO, Association of Equipment Management Professionals
NIBS is unique in how it convenes experts from building sciences, professional practice, academia and government. No other organization offers that combination of resources to help America confront and reverse its resilience problems.

Membership provides access, at an organizational or individual level, to weigh in on member projects that shape the future of the place people live, work, learn, and play. Organizational members often have multiple individuals, representing a variety of job roles, participating in NIBS councils.
