This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Energy Bar Association (EBA). Join EBA over the course of the next 10 months as we celebrate 75 years of relationship building, high-quality educational content, engaging discussions, policy debates, knowledge sharing, collegiality, and ultimately advancing professional excellence in the evolving energy landscape!
We will celebrate this special milestone in a variety of ways throughout the year so stay tuned for many opportunities to participate. We kick-off #75YearsofEBA with a Membership Recruitment campaign and a call-to-action for EBA members: 75 Members in 75 Days!
The EBA challenges its members to encourage their colleagues, students, interns and others interested in today's ever changing and evolving energy industry to join EBA and become a part of our community.
Every time you recruit a new member, you strengthen EBA. When EBA membership grows, we all benefit through access to an expanded network of industry professionals, as well as additional resources and support!
Refer a new member during EBA's 75 Members in 75 Days campaign and both parties will be entered into a drawing for a FREE #EBA2021AM registration!
For every new member you recruit, between February 23, 2021 and May 8, 2021, you will receive an entry into a drawing for a FREE #EBA2021AM registration!
All current members who participate in this campaign will also be recognized at the 2021 Annual Meeting & Conference.
The grand prize winner will be chosen and announced via tweet on May 10, 2021. Be sure to FOLLOW US @EnergyBarAssoc to find out the lucky winner. If the grand prize winner is unable to attend the Annual Meeting, it can be passed along to an associate or traded in for a free registration to another 2021 program of your choosing.
In addition, any current member who recruits or sponsors three or more new attorney or energy professional members will earn a complimentary registration of a Chapter Annual Meeting of their choosing. Chapter Meeting offer must be redeemed before the 2022 Annual Meeting & Conference.
You can also choose to SPONSOR a new member for a chance to win big! Know any student, young associates or interns that could seriously benefit from an EBA membership - but could use some support to get started?! Give them the gift that keeps on giving - an EBA membership offers education, updates on industry trends, professional development and leadership opportunities and plenty of networking!
- Identify your prospects. Review your network of professional colleagues and identify those who have never been EBA members and would benefit from joining.
