WCEE’s Women in Leadership Wine & Cheese Reception

Lessons Learned from Political Appointees

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 6:00 pm

Are you are thinking about your next career step? Perhaps, moving into executive leadership? If you are considering pursuing a political appointment, this is a must-attend event!

Join us for a lively discussion about the political appointment process in the energy and environmental fields. Hear from our leadership panel of former state and federal political appointees about how they started down the path towards political appointment and navigated the process.

Our panelists will share their experiences and candid views about the challenges and rewards of a political appointment, as well as lessons they have learned while in these highly visible roles.

 

Panelists:
*Abigail Hopper, President and CEO, Solar Energy Industries Association, and formerly Director of the U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, and Director of the Maryland Energy Administration
*Colette Honorable, Partner, Reed Smith LLP, and formerly Commissioner of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and Chairman of the Arkansas Public Service Commission

*Elin Katz, Consumer Counsel, State of Connecticut, and President of the National Association of State Utility Advocates
