NABCEP Executive Director to Host Intersolar Summit USA East

NABCEP is thrilled to partner with Intersolar for Intersolar Summit USA East in Brooklyn on March 24, 2016. NABCEP Executive Director Richard Lawrence will be hosting the event, announcing speakers and sessions throughout the day.

With momentum gathering through the extension of the ITC, and both solar and energy storage markets surging in the northeast, the Summit is once again the key platform for solar and storage professionals in the region. This program covers the whole spectrum of topics currently impacting the solar and energy storage industries designed to give you insight into the latest developments and business opportunities in this ever-growing market. You can also take advantage of valuable business network opportunities with leading executives and suppliers in order to pave the way for future business.

Call for Volunteers
In July of 2015, NABCEP announced approved changes to its Entry Level Program. A summary of these changes can be found here.

NABCEP is now entering the development stage of this credential and is  looking for volunteers to assist with the development of the Job Task Analysis (JTA) for the new NABCEP PV Associate program. The purpose of a JTA is to define the tasks, knowledge, and skills associated with the installation of PV systems.

Committee Members will be tasked with ensuring the JTA reflects the current job responsibilities of PV industry professionals. The ideal volunteer would specialize in PV design, installation, or maintenance. We are looking for approximately 12-15 volunteers for this committee who represent different geographic regions and practice settings.

Volunteer responsibilities include an in-person meeting as well as follow-up webinars and conference calls.

If you are interested in joining this committee, please send a cover letter and resume to Kathryn Casey at [email protected].
