Young Conservatives for Energy Reform Newsletter
YC4ER has had a very busy this summer with events around the country, which included a great event in Chicago with our Illinois YC4ER Chapter in June. Special guest speaker was our good friend General Richard Zilmer. We had over 100 Young Republicans in attendance at the Hubbard Inn. General Zilmer spoke about the importance of clean energy from a national security perspective. I would like to personally thank Angel Garcia, Brenden Seyring and Natalia Pogrebna, our Chicago team, for a job well done.
YC4ER co-hosted a clean energy reception with the Christian Coalition of America at the RNC Convention in Cleveland at the Hard Rock Café on Monday, July 18th. Our co-sponsors included Ohio Conservative Energy Forum and Defend Our Future. There were over 400 guests in attendance at the event. The theme of the reception was to educate and promote clean energy to the delegates, alternates and guests of the convention. We were thrilled to have many speakers which included Senator Larry Obhoff (R-OH), Senator Dave Biswas (R-MI), Congressman Bill Johnson (R-OH), Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Congressman Bob Gibbs (R-OH), and Congressman Jim Renacci (R-OH).
YC4ER was honored to be invited to the Bloomberg Media luncheon which highlighted organizations that are leading the way in the conservative clean energy field. Bloomberg Media quoted our organization in a few articles during the convention. I would like to thank Tyler Duvelius for doing a great job in heading up our advanced team on the event in Cleveland.
YC4ER was asked to speak at the American Sustainable Business Council Luncheon and Policy Forum on Wednesday, July 20th held at the Cleveland School of Law during the RNC Convention. I spoke on the importance of educating our grassroots on clean energy policies. The event was well attended and it was exciting to learn about the new technologies with clean energy businesses around the country.
Our Conservative Clean Energy Summit is coming up in September in Washington, DC. I encourage everyone to register for this exciting event with great speakers and exciting information about innovative technologies on clean energy. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Summit in September!

We have a jammed packed schedule planned with many US Senators, House members and industry leaders. This event was very successful last year and brought in attendees from around the country.
