The ERB is made up of industry leading infrastructure professionals representing public agencies, private companies, and general interest groups who are appointed to the Envision Review Board by ISI’s Board of Directors.
“I could not be more impressed with the caliber of this year’s cohort, or more grateful for the members of the Envision Review Board who recently completed their terms,” says Melissa Peneycad, ISI’s managing director and ex-officio member of the Envision Review Board. “The future of the Envision sustainable infrastructure framework remains bright under their oversight.”
The mission of the ERB is to assure the continued integrity and efficacy of Envision and its associated tools, resources, and documents to provide for consistency in interpretation and development; and to assure the ongoing relevance of the tool and its associated best practices to the highest standards of scholarship and practice. The Envision Review Board meets quarterly and is responsible for drafting and approving Envision credit amendments, providing strategic director for Envision development, and ensuring material is consistent with the overall intent and character of Envision.
