HAPPY BIRTHDAY to AABE!!
Today is the 37th Anniversary of the founding of the American Association of Blacks in Energy.
AABE was founded by Clarke A. Watson in Denver, Colorado, in the spring of 1977. The meeting called for a core gathering of African-Americas concerned about energy matters on July 25 and 26, 1977, at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. That was our beginning.
Today, we celebrate with 38 chapters, thousands of members strong with a keen focus on policy and technology based initiatives, international efforts, partnership alliances and entrepreneurial outreach! We are on the move and excited about our progress as we celebrate our birthday today.
