Help Us Make a Difference!
Join a VAEEC committee today to make your mark on the efficiency community.
As the VAEEC Board begins to plan for next year and beyond, we rely on our committees to help guide our direction. In the spring, we will look to our committee members to fill three vacant Board seats.

The VAEEC has three, year-round committees that are open to all current VAEEC members:

  • Membership, which focuses on expanding our membership base and member benefits.

  • Policy, which makes recommendations on endorsing legislation, making public comments, and partnering with other organizations.

  • Education & Events, which helps organize on our biannual member meetings and assists with other efficiency and awareness programs.

If you would like to join one of these committees, please contact We will begin accepting resumes for Board candidates in early 2019. Stay tuned for details.

Fall Meeting & Awards Luncheon

A Season of Site Tours
Energy Efficiency is important, but it can be hard to quantify. To help show exactly how efficiency programs help communities, VAEEC partnered with Local Energy Alliance Program and Viridiant for two onsite building tours with Virginia state Senators.
