changes to LEED 2012 In response to concerns raised by members, core LEED users and stakeholders, and in an effort to provide the marketplace a view of the full LEED program experience prior to ballot, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has an- nounced that it will delay ballot on LEED 2012 until June 1, 2013 (or potentially earlier in 2013 if USGBC members and the market indicate readiness for ballot). Because of this date change, LEED 2012 is being renamed LEED v4. "LEED pushes the envelope to bring transfor-


mation to the market—that's what we do," says Scot Horst, senior vice president, LEED. "We remain committed to that, and to making sure that what we deliver is complete and can be success- fully implemented." In addition to the ballot date change, other


actions include: • Keeping LEED 2009 open for registration for three years.


• Continuing to ask for the market's assistance in "test driving" LEED v4 to gain important insight during a time when improvements in usability infrastructure can be made.


• Committing to a fi fth public comment that will open on Oct. 2, 2012 and run through Dec. 10, 2012 to take advantage of Greenbuild where the USGBC will hold public forums and educational sessions on-site in San Francisco. This will help
