This is a highly impressive group of folks which is reflective of the high caliber of our overall membership. I am confident that the future of the NCAC is bright.

There are numerous professional organizations in the DC area but none like the NCAC. All volunteer. Minimalist budget. No sponsors. Seeks no sponsors. Non-partisan. Expertly focused on energy and economics. And, out of this group comes consistently high quality, relevant lunch speakers, topical conferences, Lively networking events, and interesting technical tours. And, about 14% of our 400 members are students which bodes well for the future of the organization.

It has been a pleasure serving this past year as president. I’d like to thank the current officers and Council members for their dedication and a job well done. I’d also like to thank you, the members. It is you that make the NCAC what it is.

All the best,

Jim McDonnell
Avalon Energy Services, LLC
Immediate Past President, NCAC
