On behalf of all of us here at the Local Government Commission and our SEEC partners, our hearts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. This includes not only our first responders and those diagnosed with the virus, but their friends and family as well as the schools and businesses that have been impacted.

Given the gravity of the COVID-19 situation, we have decided to move the 11th Annual Statewide Energy Efficiency Forum to a virtual format. Our priority, first and foremost, is the health, safety, and well-being of our participants and their communities.

We are currently working to develop the structure of this virtual format and will be sure to keep you informed as planning efforts get underway. Once the new virtual format is determined, we will launch a new CFSP that aligns with the creative and engaging options we are working to identify. All submissions received to-date will be considered and we will reach out to proposers to discuss how their sessions can be adapted.

We look forward to sharing more information in the coming weeks! If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ryan Dana at
