Want the chance to grow personally and professionally?
Board service is a chance to grow personally and professionally, to develop valuable skills, gain unique experience and make lasting connections with other passionate and motivated attorneys and energy professionals. Board service is a rare chance to help strategically improve the programs and services that we offer to our members and provides unique opportunities to expand your network and gain recognition from your employer, community, or peers.
