USGBC Membership Shrinks Another 9%

You may remember a post from February back where I noticed the USGBC reported a decline in membership on their Member Update newsletters. I noticed today that that membership has declined further, dropping to 16,380 from a peak of 20,000 reported in January 2010.

It’s worth noting that I’ve seen no indications that LEED registrations or personal accreditations are declining, and as we’ve seen before residential LEED certifications are growing very rapidly. As always, I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on why this decline continues… is it just the poor economy or something more?
