The Chicago Green Collar Jobs Initiative Steering Committee relies heavily on partner organizations to help us develop and implement our advocacy priorities.  In an effort to develop and engage an active partnership, the Initiative developed a Partner Agreement to formalize organizational participation.  If you’re interested in becoming a Partner, please fill out the above application and e-mail us here.
