Members set to meet with over 40 members of Congress and Administration Officials
Over 40 members of the Energy Workforce & Technology Council are headed to Washington, D.C., on February 6-7, for their annual fly-in.
During the annual event, executives from the energy services sector will engage with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and members of the Biden Administration. They will delve into discussions on potential bipartisan energy legislation, the significant effects of the recent decision to halt permitting for LNG facilities, the integral role of EWTC members in bolstering energy and national security, addressing supply chain challenges, the need for permitting reform and the implications of ongoing geopolitical conflicts around the globe.
“As we head into our largest fly-in to date, EWTC members are eager to meet with elected officials on both sides of the aisle to advocate for the energy services sector. With the Administration’s latest action halting LNG exports to the ongoing efforts surrounding permitting reform, it is critical for members of Congress and the Administration to hear firsthand accounts from the energy workforce and understand the real-life implications that are felt from policy decisions handed down from the nation’s capital.”Energy Workforce President Tim Tarpley
“The energy workforce is amongst the most resilient in the nation. From the shale revolution to implementing innovative technology across the energy services sector, no other industry does more to power not just the United States, but our allies abroad. We look forward to telling the story of the energy services sector to our elected officials.”Energy Workforce President Molly Determan
