DESCRIPTION: In this session we will cover the importance and logistics of submitting public comments and stakeholder feedback for energy efficiency programs and consensus-based standards. We’ll discuss the reasons why a boots-on-the-ground perspective is important when making policy decisions and the logistics of bringing your perspective to the table in a clear, concise, and meaningful way. 

It is easy to get caught up in the rollercoaster of negativity if we believe we are a victim of the standards and regulations we work under. We want our voice to be heard, but often do not fully understand the mechanisms for doing so. That ends today!
