Louis Capuano III and Dennis J. Gilles join the new GRC Board of Directors.

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is governed by a Board of Directors, elected by the general membership to 2-year terms. To provide continuity, half of the Board is elected every year. All GRC members are eligible for election to the Board of Directors.

The global GRC membership took part in the ballot in the late fall, and the result was that two new members of the Board were elected:

Louis Capuano, III is Drilling Engineer/Project Manager at Capuano Engineering Company. Louis joins his father, Louis E. Capuano, Jr. on the GRC Board of Directors. He has been an instructor at the National Geothermal Academy in Reno the last two years.

Dennis J. Gilles is a member of the Board of Directors for U.S. Geothermal. He was Senior Vice President with Calpine Corporation, responsible for the management of all Calpine geothermal interests, including The Geysers. Dennis has served on the GRC Board before and also served for 10 years as the Chairman of the Board for the Geothermal Energy Association (GEA).

Louis and Dennis join the eight other members who have been re-elected to the Board of Directors: Paul Brophy, James W. Lovekin, Roy L. Mink, Joseph Moore, Marilyn Nemzer, Lisa Shevenell, Charlene L. Wardlow, and Shigeto Yamada.

At the end of 2012, the GRC membership stood at 1,595, with members from 44 countries. The Board of Directors includes three international members.
