Statement of Understanding

Committee Participation


In accomplishing our mission and achieving our goals, MEA values business diversity in our member companies, and seeks individual diversity of gender, race, and point-of-view in MEA leaders. We are strongest when we have the best of all peoples’ talents available to us.

It is the value of collective problem solving that drives the role of MEA. Collaborative addressing of issues by multiple stakeholders, utilities, suppliers, regulators, R&D entities, and other industry experts helps uncover “better/best practices” in a highly cost-effective and comprehensive manner.

MEA assists member companies in improving their operations and creating safer workplaces by conducting conferences, roundtables, training classes, and other information-exchange opportunities. Through these events, employees in the energy industry become more knowledgeable of operations in their discipline and better connected to their peers.

  • Attendance and Participation Expectations

    Serving on a committee comes with certain expectations, as outlined below. MEA recognizes that the demands of a committee member’s occupation may periodically preclude participation in a learning event, conference call, or other MEA activity. Committee members are asked to communicate to their MEA staff liaison if they are, or were, unable to participate in a given MEA activity. Advance notice is appreciated. If committee members find that their schedule or work situation precludes meeting the above expectations, they should discuss their situation with the appropriate MEA staff liaison.
