What EBA values and why energy professionals value EBA
 
As we close another year, this is traditionally a time of giving thanks and reflecting on our professional and personal lives. I want to give thanks to all the members of EBA who make it function successfully, who volunteer their time on its Board, committees, chapters, two foundations and the events that truly make EBA a community of connections. Without the many EBA members who make themselves available to chart our course and make our events thrive, EBA could not exist. 
 
In November, as we do every year, EBA visited with the commissioners of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). This annual opportunity to have personal meetings with FERC's leadership is unique and affords us a chance to gain insight on the issues and challenges the agency sees ahead. It also give us the opportunity inform and share with FERC not only EBA's future plans, but the direction of Foundation of the Energy Law Journal (FELJ) and the Charitable Foundation of EBA (CFEBA) as well.
 
Having access to key energy policymakers, attorneys and technical specialists at the federal, state and municipal levels is one of the reasons energy lawyers and energy professionals join EBA. EBA provides access to people and information they normally would not have without membership. That's why more 2,500 energy professionals value their membership. If you are like them and value what EBA provides, renew your membership today and enjoy these benefits.
 
Happy holidays and warm wishes for a great new year!
