Individual Membership

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) is the only place that brings together a unique group of building industry professionals, in addition to government, non-profits, private sector and academia, to develop solutions to the challenges faced in the built environment. Members develop and implement technical and procedural improvements through collaboration within NIBS’ councils, committees and programs.

Membership provides access to weigh in on member projects that shape the future of the place people live, work, learn, and play. Join NIBS and become part of the solution.
