NASEO has committees, task forces, and advisory groups that inform our issue areas and policy actions on behalf of State Energy Offices.
NASEO elevates state priorities and perspectives as a part of the federal energy policy and program development process. NASEO's Board of Directors and Committees establish policy positions and direct the organization's initiatives. One of NASEO's main priorities is encouraging Congressional and Administration support for the U.S. State Energy Program.
Standing NASEO Committees meet regularly (both in-person and via conference call and webinar. Generally these committees are focused on increasing State Energy Office awareness and education on specific topics. Most NASEO Committees are guided by a core "Leadership Team"" of State and Affiliate members.
Task Forces, Work Groups, and Advisory Groups:
Task Forces and Advisory Groups are project-specific and time-bound (usually lasting 1-2 years). Members of these groups volunteer to provide strategic guidance and direction to NASEO staff as they develop publications, events, and other resources on a given topic, and may be invited to participate in conference calls, webinars, and meetings. Sometimes, NASEO Task Forces/Advisory Groups may be converted to full standing committees, based on member feedback and NASEO Board direction.
