EEI will be the best trade association.
We will be the best because we are committed to knowing our members and their needs. We will provide leadership and deliver services that consistently meet or exceed their expectations.
We will be the best because we will attract and retain employees who have the ambition to serve and will empower them to work effectively as individuals and in teams.
Above all, we will be the best trade association because, in the tradition of Thomas Edison, we will make a significant and positive contribution to the long-term success of the electric power industry in its vital mission to provide electricity to foster economic progress and improve the quality of life.
