The board of the National Capital Area Chapter of the U.S. Association for Energy Economics is proud to announce that Shirley Neff will receive the 2020 Lively Award.
The award recognizes contributions to the chapter and the field of energy economics at large. It will be presented to Shirley at the chapter’s annual dinner on Wednesday, February 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Embassy of Canada at 501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, DC.
Shirley is a former chapter president who many of you know and have met. Her contributions to the field and to the NCAC as an economist, mentor, scholar, researcher and public servant are unmatched.
Shirley is currently Senior Advisor in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs in the U.S. Department of Energy.
She has also been a Senior Advisor to the Administrator at the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Shirley has had many roles that I know NCAC members will admire. For instance, she was detailed to the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Commission and has also been a Senior Associate in the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
She has also been an adjunct professor at Columbia University, and staff economist at the US Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee
The award is named in honor of Mark Lively, a longtime NCAC member and former president who passed away in 2016.
Registration is now open for the dinner. Karen Harbert, CEO of the American Gas Association, will be our featured speaker. I look forward to joining you to hear Karen's remarks, and honoring Shirley.
