It is a great honor for us to work with them all and we look forward to starting towards our schedule of 2019 goals for increasing awareness of geothermal energy across society, in the USA and abroad.
DAVIS, Calif. (PRWEB) December 21, 2018
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 November, and the result was that five new members of the Board were elected: Andrea (Andy) Blair, Lara Owens, Robert Podgorney, Jefferson W. Tester and Hildigunnur (Hidda) Thorsteinsson.
They join eight other members who have been re-elected to the Board of Directors: Louis Capuano, III, Warren T. Dewhurst, James Lovekin, Leland "Roy" Mink, Jon Trujillo, Jeff Witter, Shigeto Yamada and Katherine (Kate) Young.
The diverse membership of the Board of Directors reflects the mission of the GRC to represent the entire global geothermal community.
William Pettitt, Executive Director of the GRC commented "We would like to congratulate all the new members of the Board on their success in the election and express our appreciation for them standing up to be a Director of the GRC. It is a great honor for us to work with them all and we look forward to starting towards our schedule of 2019 goals for increasing awareness of geothermal energy across society, in the USA and abroad."
