The Energy Coalition, a collaborative University of Houston student organization, is hosting the 2019 Energy Night on Monday, November 4, at the Student Center. The event will bring in leading experts who can share insights and answer questions about the future of the energy sector.

Speakers include Kevin McCue, energy manager at NASA’s Johnson Space Center; Ben Exner, vice president of energy investment banking with Citibank; and Michelle Pflueger, general manager of digital innovation and acceleration at Chevron.

“This is a special opportunity that educates attendees and celebrates Houston’s position as the Energy Capital of the World,” said Elliott Martinez, vice chairman of marketing with the coalition. “Being students, we have questions about jobs, challenges and how we can best be prepared to join the workforce.”

Registration is limited to 500 attendees. Attending students will have the opportunity to network with professionals, student organizations and peers. There will also be refreshments and giveaways. Students can also enter for a chance to win a $500 scholarship by submitting a 60-second video highlighting the future of Houston or UH and energy.

The coalition represents over 34 student organizations and has a membership of more than 5,000 students. Its mission is to foster multidisciplinary communication and collaboration among various UH colleges and organizations, and create opportunities focused on the energy sector.
