Each semester we plan trips (or “treks”) to visit companies in the industry, particularly potential employers. Houston, being a short drive from Austin, is a mainstay on the trek schedule.
Periodically, we will host or co-host events featuring guest speakers from the industry. These create educational as well as networking opportunities and help to boost the Energy Finance brand.
The knowledge and experience represented within our membership are an extremely valuable asset to our group. To facilitate inter-member networking, we frequently host happy hours.
