Collaboration is the foundation of NIBS. The organization 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. 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.

Most of the recommended code changes in Part 1 of the NEHRP Provisions are adopted by ASCE/SEI 7-22, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, which is to be adopted by reference by the 2024 International Building Code.
Infrastructure 2022 Webinar Series The National Institute of Building Sciences continues its mission to provide an open forum for discussion among the various facets of the building sector.

Our subject matter experts looked at everything from natural disaster mitigation and the pandemic’s impact on technology in the built environment to building information modeling. Join us for Infrastructure 2022.
