North Carolina Chapter Home

Greetings, AABE® Members.


The NC Chapter Board of Directors stands ready to “Inform, Educate, Advance and Grow the network of energy professionals” within our area and with our external business partners in the energy industry.

Our chapter strategically focuses on five areas: Membership, Scholarship, Legislative, Communications and Corporate Citizenship.

  • Membership – We have a clear focus on targeted membership drives, the value of industry partnerships, and bridging the gap with our Student Chapters.

  • Scholarship – Through our scholarship program, we provide financial support to students pursuing careers in energy-related fields and serve as an active partner in the community for Black Energy Awareness Month. During Black Energy Month, we plan an interactive learning environment for high school students to broaden their knowledge about the energy industry and new technology, as well as enhance their exposure to various career opportunities within the energy field.

  • Legislative – We host industry summits and programs focused on legislative issues impacting the energy landscape.

  • Communications – We inform and engage our members by providing quarterly updates in our newsletter, "emPowering You". We engage with our members on our Facebook page. Like us on Facebook and share our page with your friends!

  • Corporate Citizenship - Through strategic partnerships with employee resource groups such as our fellow Duke Energy Employee Resource Groups, we will seek out appropriate opportunities to represent the company through advocacy and community outreach.

Our chapter has a number of opportunities to “Inform, Educate, Advance, and Grow the network of energy professionals". We want YOU to stay engaged with our chapter, expand your network, continue to develop leadership skills and be committed to the mission of AABE. Invite someone to join this great organization. If you have questions about our programs or the chapter, please contact us.
