Virtual Energy & Environmental Committee Meeting / March 2021 Agenda

It has been a busy time in every aspect of CIBO operations, committees, and issues with the transition of our Government to a fundamentally different administration and agenda along with the planning for the transition to CIBO’s new Executive Director May 1 of this year.  With the new Administration, CIBO’s role to provide the technical foundation upon which reasonable laws, regulations and policies are crafted is more important now than ever before.  The drive to implement Climate Change mitigation and eliminate fossil fuels is now a key component of the mission of every Executive Branch, Department or Agency.   How this impacts and affects industrial and institutional energy operations is the focus of these two meetings.

CEU’s will be offered for both meetings (0.6 CEU or 6 hours) or for individual meetings (0.3 CEU each).  A request for CEU credits should be noted on the meeting registration from then CIBO Website.
