After a summer recess, the Chamber’s Energy Briefing series resumes on August 10th, 12:00 PM at the Mesa County Workforce Center. Kathleen Sgamma, Western Energy Alliance will present a program, “Federal Overreach and the Keep-It-in-the-Ground Movement”. Even as commodity prices begin to rise there are additional actions on a number of fronts that may inhibit the development of energy resources in the Rocky Mountain West. Kathleen has been the Vice President of Government and Public Affairs for the Western Energy Alliance for the last ten years and testified earlier this spring before the House Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources on a variety of topics related to the energy industry including Sage Grouse, Bureau of Land Management Oil and Gas Data, and Regulatory Economic Analysis.
Mark your calendars for the September 14th Energy Briefing, 12:00 PM at the Mesa County Workforce Center featuring Kelly Flennekin, Xcel Energy. Kelly, Area Manager, Community & Local Government Affairs at Xcel Energy will speak about the plans at Xcel to assure our future energy needs are met in the region.
