SPECIAL EDITION
Why a special edition of the IREC Report?   So you don't miss the opportunity to reserve a seat for this important one-day visionary exploration of  what’s needed next to make bold clean energy goals a reality. 

It's all here - who and what's on the agenda and why we think your participation will be valuable - to you and those you represent in your state, community, industry or organization.

You'll spend the day in deep outcome-driven dialogue as prominent national and state clean energy influencers lead thought-provoking expert panels and interactive discussion. And you'll help guide a resulting vision document, and ultimately an action plan, key to our collective clean energy future.

Be a part of this premiere thought leaders program tailored for energy decision makers, advocates and educators.


The impact of the day will be set by Rose McKinney-James, a national role model for legislative and regulatory advocacy for renewable and clean energy policy. With a long history in public service, non-profit volunteerism and private sector corporate social responsibility, she is former president and CEO for the Corporation for Solar Technology and Renewable Resources, a former commissioner with the Nevada Public Service Commission, and served as vice president of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissions.

An opportunity to interact with a broad representation of experts, including renowned members of the Summit's National Advisory Committee .
