We are a statewide 501c6 building performance not-for-profit association forming a new 501c3 charity to serve the burgeoning energy efficiency industry in NYS. We are seeking experienced board members for this charity, which will serve non-profits in education, training and workforce development as well as meeting public needs for funding. The founding board members will work with us closely to develop an industry-wide solution to the challengs we all face and should have experience in non-profit management, strategic planning, board development, and fundraising. Our partner organizations and membership wholeheartedly support this initiative to serve this ever-growing need that is not being met elsewhere in the state. This is a creative and innovative project that we expect to grow very rapidly with common support systems.
