Letter from the Chair
2016 Environmental Markets Association:
Happy Holidays and Thank You!
Dear EMA Member:
Hello and Happy Holidays!  For the past three years I have been fortunate enough to serve as Chair of this wonderful association.  I am so pleased with the results we have been able to achieve during this time, both in terms of the success of the events we have held, and in terms of the broadening of our topics and our membership.  I am particularly proud to report that EMA is finishing 2016 very strong, and is in excellent position to take on the multitude of issues our industry faces going into 2017.  Personally, I would like to thank each of you for your support of EMA.  Whether you sponsored one of our events, participated as a speaker, or simply attended a meeting, your contribution is greatly appreciated, and is the reason that after 20 years, the EMA is as relevant and vibrant as it ever was.

As I announced in October during our annual meeting in Austin, Christie Bradway, Manager of Renewable Power Contracts at Eversource Energy, is now taking over as Chair.  I could not be happier that Christie has stepped up to lead EMA.  For those of you who may not know her, I can tell you her experience in our industry and markets will be a significant asset for us, and I am confident you will all agree we are fortunate to have her.  Please join me in congratulating Christie and wishing her the best of luck!

Again, thank you all.  I look forward to seeing you in 2017, and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. I wish you all the very best for a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year!
