President’s Message


It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of the Greater Albany Chapter of the Women’s Energy Network! 

We are proud to be one of the newest chapters of an organization whose mission is to develop programs to provide networking opportunities and foster career and leadership development of our members who work in the energy industries.  

Albany has a strong representation among energy-sector entities which makes bringing WEN to this region so important. The Greater Albany area is home to utilities, traditional energy companies, government and policy groups, energy advocacy organizations, environmental groups and a number of governmental relations and laws firms all working to advance the energy and environmental sectors in New York. 

WEN Greater Albany will give members working in this field a unique safe space to network with one another, educate one another and navigate the ever-changing energy world together. We will foster a setting in which others that can appreciate the challenges we face as an industry and as women.  

We welcome you to join us in being a part of growing this important organization for local women involved in the energy and environmental sectors. We look forward to growing strong together in the years to come!

Michelle Hook
President, Greater Albany Chapter
