More Information on the WELL Membership Community
The IWBI membership community accompanies the uptake of the WELL Building Standard (WELL) offerings, including WELL Certification, the WELL Health-Safety Rating and WELL Portfolio programs, which stand at over 3 billion square feet of projects across nearly 110 countries.
Two tiers of membership currently exist within a program, with a third special designation set aside for organizations already enrolled in WELL programs at scale. Member benefits include discounts on the WELL Certification process and WELL AP credentialing program, specialized opportunities to publicize accomplishments and more touchpoints with IWBI leadership and across the broader community through members-only year-round events and enhanced digital engagement.
The program creates opportunities for WELL advocates and champions to stay connected, share best practices, explore new shared initiatives and receive greater recognition for these efforts.
