CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

The United States Energy Association (USEA) is seeking nominations for the 2017 United States Energy Award.  This prestigious award was established in 1989 to honor individuals in the energy industry for their outstanding leadership initiatives and significant contributions to the national and international understanding of energy issues.  

Each year, the United States Energy Award Selection Committee, composed of national energy leaders, examines each nomination for a clearly articulated set of values and history of proven accomplishments and international contributions, which promote a greater understanding of energy issues.   Support for the United States Energy Association (USEA) is a major consideration.  

The Award presentation will be made during the USEA Annual Membership Meeting & Public Policy Forum in the Spring in Washington, DC.  Selected award recipient must be present in order to receive the award.  A brief oration by the recipient is encouraged but not required.
