Media Coverage of EBA’s 2017 Annual Meeting & Conference

In the past few years, EBA’s public profile has risen dramatically as mainstream media and energy and legal publications have increasingly viewed Energy Bar Association events as news-making opportunities. The prominent industry personalities that speak and appear at EBA sessions lends credibility to the notion that perspectives and reflections by its members and guests impact energy policy- and lawmakers and the larger energy sector community.
