Newsletter #2: Sustainable Energy
March, 2016 
Greetings <<First Name>>, 
Thank you for supporting the SMA and leading transformation in your business, government, organization and/or school. Your dedication to economic performance, environmental stewardship, and social responsibility help make the Sustainability Management Association what we are today.
My name is Brandon Morton and I am excited to introduce myself as your new SMA President. I have big shoes to fill, following in the steps of  the founding, President Amanda Fairley, Sustainability Manager for South Atlantic Area for Waste Management.  Luckily for the SMA and I, Amanda has not left SMA altogether. She is still very dedicated to SMA’s vision as 
member, and volunteers her time and expertise serving on the SMA Board of Directors.
I would also like to introduce your new SMA Officers for 2016 - 2019:
  • Jeffrey Heuton, Boyett Construction, Inc., SMA Vice President
  • Yuti Huang, PhD, Dominican University of California, SMA Secretary
  • Michelle Visentin, Roebbelen Contracting, Inc., SMA Treasurer
SMA Officers are dedicated to SMA’s mission, working directly with Executive Director Angela Casler and the SMA Board of Directors to meet the needs of SMA members and the growing community of sustainability professionals worldwide.
In regards to our own sustainability community, SMA, I would very much like to get to know you better, as would some of our Board Directors. Please feel free to contact any of us directly to talk about anything, what you like about SMA or what we can do better to meet your needs. We are here to serve you and the mission of SMA.
2016 starts off with a newsletter all about energy.  Special thanks to the SMA Newsletter Team, SMA Interns, and SMA Board of 
Directors, and in particular SMA Board Director Mark Kindelberger from Schneider Electric for providing much of the content featured.
Also, don’t forget to advocate for SMA or get involved in our initiatives
  • SMA Advocacy and Membership Recruitment
  • Publish an article in the SMA Newsletter
  • Nominate yourself or organization to be in the SMA Member Spotlight
  • Volunteer to speak for an SMA Topic Webinar
Thank you for all you who support SMA!
