The GBC has identified energy and working toward a stable regulatory policy environment in Maryland as key issues for the region’s business community. Working with a small steering group of GBC members interested in energy issues, the GBC is now moving toward expanding this interest to a full policy committee of the GBC.
The new Energy Committee will have a strong educational component as well as public policy or project orientation. One of its initial activities will be to educate the business community about the nature of the crisis currently facing Maryland and to outline the implications for the business community should adequate energy not be available.
The new committee will be chaired by Van Reiner, president and CEO of the Maryland Science Center. This will be a working committee, meeting quarterly with subcommittees working between meetings.
If you are interested in serving on this new committee, please contact Liz Pettengill at 410-727-2820.
