We’re now OEEESs

After a very successful AGM, we are now changing our name from the Old Etonian Renewable Energy Association (OEREA) to the OEEESs (Old Etonian Environment, Energy & Sustainability Society). We expect that this will drastically increase our scope and mandate.
As a favour, I would kindly like to ask you to review the list of members to see if anyone is missing. With our new brand, we would like to double our membership from +150 to +300 over the next year.
You can simply forward the online registration form onto any OEs who would be interested in joining the OEEESS– https://goo.gl/forms/ji5XSrHYPPXHgYRZ2
Additionally, please feel free to identify key speakers (OE or not) for our next event in Nov/Dec who could provide compelling insight on EES.
Best regards,
Paul Soskin and Charles Perry
OEEESS Committee
