Year after year, TEPA continues to set new membership records! That’s because energy professionals are finding more value in their TEPA membership than ever before. From first-class educational events and networking with the industry’s most respected thought-leaders, to working with policy makers – there’s never been a better time to be a TEPA member.

Our growth is largely due to the time and talents of our volunteer board and committee members. Like you, they juggle busy careers with their home and personal lives. Like Elizabeth Andrew said, “they don’t necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

As TEPA grows, so does the need for more volunteers with heart. Whether a supplier or broker, there’s an opportunity for you to get more involved. Please take a moment to read through these committee opportunities and contact me to get signed up! There’s a lot to do in helping shape this industry – and we can use your help.
