Dear Member,

Over the past several months we have changed our primary communication methods leveraging more digital platforms such as eblasts, this monthly e-newsletter and social media. However, we realize not everyone in your organization receives our communications. As EAP looks to expand value for your membership, take a moment to think of a colleague or two who might benefit from being on our distribution list. Share this newsletter and allow them to  join our mailing list directly.
 
Soon we will be announcing 2019 Electric Expo dates, 2018 Educational Foundation Scholarship Recipients as well as networking eve nts for the summer and fall. In the meantime, read below for some EAP news and upcoming events. 
 
Thank you for your membership, 

Sarah Hagy, Executive Director
