Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources—SEER. SEER is a dynamic legal community of, and the premier forum for, attorneys, advisors, and decision-makers who practice in all aspects of environmental, energy, and resources law, in private, in-house, academic, governmental, and public interest settings.

If you are not currently a member, I invite you to explore all SEER has to offer and the many ways to get involved. I encourage you to join us.

As a SEER member, you can share ideas and engage with other members, gain knowledge, learn new strategies, network, and influence the national policy debate on important environmental, energy, and resource issues.

Membership in SEER links you to a wealth of information, through our 29 committees, each focused on a substantive practice area. These committees as well as our major annual programs, will keep you up to date on new developments in environmental, energy, and resources law, including those related to climate change, air and water quality, Superfund, environmental litigation, public land, renewable resources, Native American resources, environmental equity and justice, international, oil and gas, and mining, to name some. Our substantive committees are also excellent avenues for members to become active in SEER. 

In addition, SEER publishes excellent books and periodicals, including Natural Resources & Environment, our flagship magazine, the bimonthly newsletter Trends, and informative substantive committee articles. 

Unfortunately, for now, the COVID-19 situation does not permit in-person events. Nonetheless, SEER is planning a full calendar of virtual programming, including our major Fall Conference, webinars, and substantive committee programs and meetings. I am hopeful and optimistic that we will meet in Denver in person in April 2021 to celebrate our 50th Spring Conference. 

If you are not currently a member, I invite you to explore all SEER has to offer and the many ways to get involved. I encourage you to join us. To learn more, visit our membership page or contact Kevin Gordon, Membership Associate, with any questions.

Safest regards,

Howard Kenison, Chair
