The National Capital Chapter (NCC) is a local, non-profit, volunteer body of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). We are one of many local AEE chapters found throughout the United States and worldwide. NCC activities benefit the careers and work of energy professionals and the studies (through scholarships) of engineering students throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan region. In 2014, the NCC provided over $3,000 in scholarships to students and won national awards for Best Chapter and Best Student Chapter!

The NCC has outstanding and valuable educational events for energy professionals such as our monthly seminars and tours, a job fair, and lots of networking events. Recently, the NCC: toured Congress with the Architect of the Capitol; visited the Possum Power Plant Station; and, viewed the DC Water Plant at Blue Plains. We also host a Holiday Riverboat Cruise of the Potomac and a Spring Golf Outing.  The following individuals help make these NCC events and activities possible:
