BETEC, BECs Explore ENGAGE Information Exchange, Building Science Education, Strengthening Local and National Communities
Collaboration is the foundation of the National Institute of Building Sciences. NIBS brings together an elite community of thinkers, innovators, educators and creators across all sectors of the built environment to solve critical issues facing the industry.
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
