Victor Valley African American Chamber's 6th Annual Economic and Health Summit
"On March 6th, SCE hosted the Victor Valley African American Chamber's 6th Annual Economic and Health Summit at Our Victorville Service Center. There was a nice cross-section of High Desert leadership there from organizations like the NAACP, Black Heritage Committee, Community Outreach Coordinator for San Bernardino County, and others. As the host, Nancy Jackson was able to showcase SCE's Income Qualified and Energy Efficiency programs. She also introduced them to AABE. She spoke about the organization's make-up of African American (energy) professionals/ organizations nationally and internationally, AABE's mission, some programs, scholarship availability, and membership opportunities. They were delighted to know about AABE and had many questions. The Inland Empire is ripe for AABE education and membership. We need to get the word out about our very fine organization in this region."
