The Advisory Council is composed of professionals with both government and private sector experience in environmental and energy program development, management and procurement. Advisors are invited to join based on the breadth of their experience in and knowledge of government programs, policy and operations.
Members of the Council help identify educational topics most valuable to government professionals charged with developing and implementing sustainable programs. Those educational topics are the basis for coverage on CEIL's web-based knowledge center as well as for CEIL's main event: CEIL's GOVgreen Conference & Exposition (November 30-December 1, 2011 at the Washington Convention Center). CEIL advisors are also instrumental in identifying speakers for the GOVgreen program.
