CABEC welcomes the support of all companies and related organizations in the energy efficiency industry, and maintains two kinds of organizational Supporter relationships:
CABEC Group Membership is intended for organizations which employ multiple energy consultants, whether they are CEAs or supporting professionals in the energy consulting space. It is composed of blocks of individual CABEC Professional Memberships, plus a non-Member administrative website account.
CABEC Sponsorship is intended for companies and organizations who wish to reach CABEC’s energy consultant Members where they are: on CABEC’s website, at CABEC’s Conference and other live events, in energy code training webinars, and occasionally in their email inboxes.
Both Supporter types include special features which help industry organizations to get the word out about their services and products to a broad scope of potential clientele, and help keep visitors to the web site informed of the latest energy saving products and services available. Supporters have been instrumental in giving CABEC Members informative information and training in the use of their products/services. CABEC has a trade show at every Conference, giving the opportunity for supporting organizations to display their product and literature and have one-on-one contact with Conference attendees.
