President's message

Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Energy Bar Association’s EBA Insights. This weekly news brief was designed to provide you with the most up-to-date information on the programs and services provide by EBA, and its Foundations — CFEBA and FELJ — along with industry news highlights and news about our members. We know you receive your news from many resources and this is not to compete with the other newsletters, but to zero in on our industry and our issues. It will be brief, informative and, through live links, as quick as you desire. Industry highlights are collected by our partner, MultiView, and come from leading news sources. You will be provided a direct link to the news source without editorial comment from EBA.

Please make sure anyone you think should be on the distribution list is aware of this new e-newsletter and membership with EBA. It should help you stay current and keep you looking ahead! We will also continue to publish our quarterly printed EBA Update Newsletter. Please provide us feedback on the EBA Insights.

Adrienne E. Clair, EBA President
