EBA Steering Committees & Councils




In order to support EBA’s 2020-2023 Strategic Plan initiatives, EBA has reorganized its committee structure into five EBA Steering Committees, managed by a focused group of Steering Committee Officers, a Chair and Vice Chair, appointed by the EBA President. The EBA Councils remain unchanged.  Rosters 2020-2021 Steering Committees and Councils 

Committees conduct business through the year and generally are responsible for developing educational programming and providing articles to the Energy Law Journal. Committee membership is open to EBA members in good standing. Interested EBA members can volunteer to serve a three-year on one of the 5 Steering Committees that best fits your area of expertise. Leadership resource page.
