The WRISE Leadership Forum is a unique experience, combining professional development with tools to advance renewable energy. Renewable professionals from across the country will connect virtually to discuss current renewable energy trends and policy issues; and gain valuable tools to enhance their careers, companies and organizations.

Even virtually, the Leadership Forum will be a great way to network with leaders from various sectors in renewable energy, like transmission, utilities, and development; all of which will be represented at this event. A draft agenda can be found here.
