The New York Metropolitan Area Chapter (NYMAC) of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE) is one of four chapters in the Northeast Region of the United States. Its members are professionals working in companies such as Consolidated Edison Company of New York (Con Edison and Orange & Rockland) and National Grid. Our mission is to provide energy professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, and students a pathway to learn more about the energy industry through education, mentoring, community service and business networking.
Each year the American Association of Blacks in Energy provides scholarships for high school seniors that are going to college to prepare for careers in the energy field. Each of our scholarship recipients are paired with mentors and become members of an organization that is invested in their future growth and success. Additional information about our organization and the scholarship can be found on the AABE website,www.aabe.org .
