IEEE/PES (Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers/Power Engineering Society) Conference on Latin America
Dear GENI Friend,
Because of your vision of GENI, we have started this year stronger than ever. Thank you for your continuing commitment. It is setting an example and others are joining the team from around the world.
The GENI Board has doubled in size to twelve very dedicated members. They lend their business acumen as well as their time and money to making GENI real in the world. They have immediately moved into action and created 5 task forces: Organization/Planning, Fund Raising, Marketing, Finance, and Technical. Each committee will help to solidify our present foundation and broaden our awareness in the world.
The Latin America report Last month GENI helped to organize a panel session at the IEEE/PES(Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers/Power Engineering Society) Conference in New York. We brought together the Latin American energy planners, ministers and World Bank experts to discuss electrical interconnections between all South and Central American nations. For future planning, this discussion will soon be published for all to read. Thanks for enabling me to be there.
Our "Fund the Vision of GENI Campaign" to raise $1 million is accelerating. We have passed $250,000 in cash and pledges since June 1993, and we are charging ahead with another series of Contribution Evenings around the world, updating our existing supporters and inviting new ones.
Your financial support enables this project to flourish, and I want to personally thank you for your contribution.
