The ETEBA Business Conference 2017 Re-Cap
At this year’s Energy, Technology and Environmental Business Association, 18th Annual Business Opportunities Conference we had an excellent series of panels and panel speakers this year. Adam Demella from the Senate Appropriations Committee offered insights on the budgeting process in DC, and Roger Jarrell, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Energy for EM, again emphasized the new DOE leadership team’s “bias for action” and getting major cleanup projects completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. We heard from procurement specialists and managers representing a cross-section of the DOE Complex including Los Alamos, NNSA, Savannah River, Oak Ridge, and a full panel of Hanford representatives. NASA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Army’s Engineering Research and Development Center (ERDC) discussed procurement protocols and opportunities, and we also got insights into the challenges and opportunities that exist in the commercial nuclear utility market.
This year’s technical panels and workshops were “stand alone” sessions that covered a broad spectrum of topics including cyber security, “lessons learned” on D&D projects, and improved techniques for bid estimation. These sessions were well attended and will continue to be an important part of our conference format in the coming years.
We are particularly delighted that Student Day was another highlight of this year’s BOC. The afternoon started with a session of excellent technical presentations given by students from the University of Tennessee’s Civil & Environmental and Nuclear Engineering Departments, then we hosted an internship/job fair for students in STEM related curricula from the University of Tennessee, Roane State Community College, and Pellissippi State Community College. Fifteen ETEBA member companies and over sixty enthusiastic young students participated in this event, and we are optimistic that many of these young people will receive internships and job offers as a result. We were so pleased with the success of our Student Day events that it too will be a regular feature at future BOC’s.
Of course, we should mention that the scholarship golf tournament was a great success this year, and judging by the number of people surrounding the gambling tables, casino night was a popular new event as well.
Doing Business with DOE
ETEBA recently participated as a Contributing Sponsor in the Tennessee Valley Corridor National Summit in Huntsville, AL. Each year, “The Summit” brings together business, political, and community leadership from throughout the ten Congressional Districts in five states across the Tennessee Valley Corridor (TVC) to assess federal initiatives and investments in the region and to evaluate how those investments are being leveraged to create private sector opportunities. As part of the Summit we received information on doing business with the Department of Energy (DOE). To access the full overview see the ETEBA Resources Page at https://eteba.org/advocacy/resources/ Some of the information provided in the overview includes information on registering with SAM, how to contact your local procurement technical assistance center (PTAC), a look at the DOE acquisition forecast, learning the basics of government contracting through the SBA, how to submit an unsolicited proposal, information on the office of small disadvantaged business utilization and more.

ETEBA Board Member Announcement January 2018
ETEBA is very pleased to announce that the election for new Board members is completed. We have added four new Board members, and two prior Board members will also be serving second terms.
Two new Board members will represent our Western Chapter. Lena Isaacs, President and Owner of ProcessQM in Los Alamos, and Renee Robinson of Sigma Science in Albuquerque will be joining current Board member Steve Rhutasel of Siemens in representing the west. ETEBA is indebted to, and extends our gratitude and appreciation to Myron Koop of Banda Group International and Kevin Leifheit of Ares Corporation for their service on the Board, and their respective personal and corporate commitments to ETEBA over the years.
New Board members in the east are Bob Eby, Executive Vice President of Navarro Research and Engineering, and Chuck Bernhard of Bernhard Consulting. Pat Hopper of Atkins Nuclear Secured and Marty Gray of Fluor Corporation were elected to second terms on the Board, and we are delighted that Pat Hopper has been elected as the President-elect to serve following our current President Dave Carlson of Huntington Ingalls Industries. Here again ETEBA owes a debt of gratitude to Stephanie Long Neu (past-President) and Mike Wade (Atkins) for their years of service and the many contributions they have made to our organization over the years, and we hope they will continue to be involved with ETEBA through their various committee appointments.
Jenny Freeman of StrataG will be stepping down as President after serving two consecutive years in support of ETEBA’s transition to a new Executive Director, but will stay onboard for another year as past-President. Dave Carlson of Huntington Ingalls Industries steps into the role of President. Jenny’s passion for ETEBA, her long history with our organization, and her wise counsel these past two years have been critical to our successful transition to new leadership. She has maintained a steady hand at the helm, and leaves a stronger foundation for our new President Dave Carlson who brings his own fresh perspective to the role. We are very excited to have him onboard and look forward to working closely with him in the coming year.
Many thanks again to those Board members whose terms have ended, and welcome again to our new Board members. Our 2018 Board is as strong as ever, and we’re looking forward to a very promising year!
