YOUNG PROFESSIONALS IN ENERGY – JANUARY 31
The Los Angeles Chapter of Young Professionals in Energy (YPE) will hold its next networking meeting on Monday, January 31, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Association, 110 East 6th Street, Los Angeles, CA 900141-2006.
JANUARY 31 IS A FREE ADMISSION EVENT
The happy hour/networking event will be highlighted by a speech from David Freeman, an energy executive, engineer, attorney and author who is one of the leaders in American energy policy and currently heads The Hydrogen Car Company. He is also a member of the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners.
Freeman has been termed an "eco-pioneer" for his environmentally-friendly leadership of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) and Tennessee Valley Authority. He also headed other major energy organizations, including the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
In addition to YPE members, C-level executives from across the city and industry are invited for an evening of networking. Our last meeting saw professionals from Southern California Edison, LADWP, Honda and more attend.
Who is a young professional? There's no age limit or prejudice. All are welcome to enjoy this unique networking opportunity.
Young Professionals in Energy (“YPE”) is the first and only interdisciplinary networking and volunteer organization for people in the global energy industry – a place where bankers can connect with engineers, accountants with geologists and so on. Our mission is to provide a forum for knowledge sharing and camaraderie among future leaders of the energy industry.
The first YPE Chapters were launched in Houston and New York in 2005 by Stephen Cravens and Michael Teplitsky as a way to bring professionals in the industry together to network and exchange ideas in a comfortable setting.
The growth of YPE from 2 to over 16,000 members since the launch of the initial chapters underlines the need that was already present in energy cities across the globe.<p>
YPE is holding its first international summit on April 8-10, 2011 in Las Vegas. More information on programming and registration can be found at www.ypenergysummit.org
