Collaboration is the foundation of NIBS. The organization 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. Below are networking opportunities that facilitate collaboration among members:
Join a council! NIBS has a variety of councils and programs that focus on broad-based and specialized building process issues. These councils are vital components of the organization, advising on key aspects of NIBS' technical programs. Each council is governed by a voluntary board of direction comprised of nationally recognized leaders in appropriate disciplines. Learn more about NIBS councils.
