"I love being an AWE member mainly for access to all the great webinars that they host, and all the research I have access to. Coming from a small utility, I don't always have the capability to travel and can't always do research myself, so I get valuable information that I otherwise would not get. I love that I can educate myself and our customers in Round Rock."
