Join an in-depth discussion on the future of federal energy research funding – March 20

The Wisconsin Energy Institute, in partnership with the American Nuclear Society, invites you to join D.C. energy insider Craig Piercy for an in-depth discussion on the future of federal energy research funding. Craig Piercy is the D.C. representative for the American Nuclear Society and has spent two decades working in both Congress and government relations.

On March 20, Piercy will be available at the Wisconsin Energy Institute to meet with faculty and staff to provide insight on the major programs that support energy research, with particular emphasis on the FY2013 and 2014 budgets and the likely impacts on the Department of Energy’s research portfolio (Office of Science, EERE, ARPA-E, etc.).

You have the opportunity to participate in two ways:

1. Attend our brown bag presentation at noon in the Wisconsin Energy Institute building

2. Meet in a small group at a time of your convenience to discuss your specific program questions

If you would like to participate, please register at this link no later than March 14th.

Craig Piercy heads the Washington D.C. office of the Bose Public Affairs Group, where he helps corporations, universities, trade associations and professional organizations achieve their federal policy, funding and public visibility objectives in Congress and the federal agencies. He brings nearly 20 years of experience as a congressional Chief of Staff, House Appropriations Committee staff member, and government relations professional to the task. Prior to establishing his government relations practice, Craig served as assistant vice president of federal affairs at Wayne State University.
