I have been a member of the Association since the very early 80’s, not long after AEE was founded and over a span approaching 40 years I can honestly say that joining and actively participating has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my career. I firmly believe and support the scientific and educational mission of AEE and encourage everyone to get involved. I have served on a volunteer basis in many ways. I founded the local AEE Chapter and remain a Board Member to this day. I have served as a Regional Officer and then as International President. I served as both member and then Chairman of the Certified Energy Manager Board (CEM) and today serve as Chairman of the Certified Energy Auditor Board as well as Director of Special Projects. Presently, as an International Instructor, I get to share the AEE knowledge all over the world and spread the value of the Association to new members. It’s incredibly rewarding and I encourage you to actively participate. I promise you will receive much more than you will give.
