ENERGY | SUMMER 2020

11/01/20 2:33 AM

The RMEL Foundation provides scholarships to deserving students pursuing careers in the electric energy industry.
We made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RMEL Foundation
Golf Tournament. We considered the safety and time commitment of all
RMEL members. We also decided to put all of our fundraising efforts into
this Auction, which all members will have the ability to participate in from
the comfort of their home and/or office.
The annual RMEL Foundation Auction will be held in September in conjunction
with the Virtual Fall Convention (exact times/dates to be announced). We will use
the same bidding app that we have used for the past couple of years, and
we will send more details to access that app before the auction.
Over the past 20 years, 407 scholarships have been awarded totaling
more than $935,500. Your support is needed to continue the Foundation's
scholarship efforts. You are encouraged to donate an item to the auction and
join the VIRTUAL auction to bid on donated items.

DONATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 2020
