How to Attract New Members and Save Money Through Clean Energy in 2016

Chambers that want to attract new members and help existing ones save money will want to take a new look at clean energy in 2016. This session will explain why, providing insights into how you can position your chamber as a leader that helps members cut costs through energy efficiency and grow jobs through renewable energy. (After all, as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft recently told Virginia policymakers: They will only do business in states that can provide renewable energy to power their operations.)

Join chamber colleagues and clean energy experts in a session you won’t want to miss, moderated by Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Membership and Brand Strategy, Cally L. Smith. Speakers include: Ryan Hodum, Senior Policy Advisor to Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy; Chelsea Harnish, Executive Director of Virginia Energy Efficiency Council; and Bill Greenleaf, Energy Program Director of Virginia Community Capital, Inc.
