Dear Members and Friends:
Greetings from the Houston Chapter of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE©). The Houston Chapter is one of eight chapters that comprise the Southwest Region of the organization. We are headquartered in Texas, the energy capital of the U.S. Some of our member companies include: British Petroleum, CenterPoint Energy, Chevron, El Paso Corporation, Entergy, EPCO, Inc., Exxon-Mobil, GE Energy, Intellascent, and Shell (among others).
The Houston Chapter welcomes professionals from all energy and energy-related disciplines (oil, gas, electricity, nuclear, renewable, government, technology, energy services, and water) to join our chapter. We believe that each of these disciplines provide our membership and community with a broader knowledge of the varied and unique aspects of the energy industry. Additionally, we encourage college students at accredited institutions who are studying in energy related fields; or planning to pursue careers in the energy industry to participate in AABE.
Our mission is to provide energy professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, and students a pathway to learn more about the energy industry through activities such as mentoring, education, community service and networking.
We are seeking members that can help us achieve our goal of impacting Houston and its surrounding communities. As you navigate through our website, please view our mission, senior officers, committees, activities and programs. When you find an area that interests you, please contact us for more information on how to get involved.
On behalf of the Officers, Committee Chairpersons, and members of the Houston Chapter of AABE© - we welcome your ideas and capabilities, so come join us.
I look forward to working with you to impact Houston.
Terry H. Stringer
American Association of Blacks in Energy
