EBA's Mission, Values and Governing Documents
Energy Bar Association (EBA) is an international, non-profit association of attorneys, energy professionals, and students active in all areas of energy law. EBA has seven regional chapters across the U.S. and one in Canada. The Energy Bar Association was established in 1946 as Federal Power Bar Association and, in 1977, the organization changed its name to Federal Energy Bar Association to reflect the name change of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Around 2000, "Federal" was dropped from the name to reflect the diversity of practices within the membership, not all of which focus on federal law.
EBA hosts numerous educational events in person and virtually throughout the year, including two national conferences that draw over 400 attendees each. Our educational programming focuses on providing introductory and advanced level programs, many approved for continuing legal education credits (CLE). An important part of EBA's success has always been its member interaction and networking opportunities. EBA hosts various lunch, reception and dinner programs providing opportunities for members to connect and share their expertise.
Volunteer opportunities are plentiful with EBA – from serving on a Steering Committee or Council, to speaking engagements, and leadership roles within our regional chapters or on one of three boards of directors.
