Want to win $500 and help shape the future of ER Law

The Energy and Resources Law Association (ER Law) wants to know what matters to its members. We want to understand why you engage with ER Law, what is most important to you and what we can do to enhance your experience as a member.
We also want to know what it is we aren’t giving you.  What isn’t being provided to members.
This short survey (4 minutes) is the first step and we are very keen to have your feed back.
We have more planned. Our next step is to conduct qualitative interviews and we’d like identify people who would be willing to participate in a further interview – members, non-members, former and potential members.

And there’s a prize pool as a way of thanking you for your time.
Please click on the link to participate and to be eligible for one of the prizes.
Many thanks for participating.

It also has the potential to apply to renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal energy.
