The 2017 VJEL Symposium, The Energy Transition, on October 20, 2017, was a huge success and we are thankful to all those who attended and tuned in via our livestream.

In an age where energy touches upon everything we do, we will be applying those lessons for years to come.

We would also like to thank Bill Bonn, Emily Potts, Shannon Leach, Maryellen Apelquist, Martina Rutkovsky, and Chef Jeff and the Café staff. IT was with their help that made this symposium a success.
