NBB Connections Benefit Industry: Pearson Joins Central Texas Clean Cities

By | April 15, 2009
Connections, relationships and affiliations within the National Biodiesel Board work to benefit the biodiesel industry. One recent example is Amber Thurlo Pearson, who served as NBB's Communications Specialist from 2004 to March 2009. After a recent move and a new job as project manager for the Central Texas Clean Cities Coalition, she continues to have a hand in promoting renewable energy. "I really got bitten by the biodiesel bug, and the passion to promote alternative fuels in general, by working for the NBB," said Pearson, who moved to Austin, Tex., with her husband Mike for his new job. "I feel very lucky to be able to continue that practice by moving to the Clean Cities organization. Of course, I will miss most the great industry people I have been able to work with and learn so much from."

Similar connections can be seen nationwide. There are countless trade associations, advisory boards, organizations, and advocacy groups related to biodiesel. NBB staff and contract members play an active role monitoring these various groups and representing the industry's priorities. Among the groups are the National School Transportation Association, American Public Transit Association, American Lung Association, National Clean Cities, Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute, Environmental & Energy Study Institute, National Algae Association, Association of Diesel Specialists, National Conference of State Legislatures, US Canola Association, ASTM, and Roundtable of Sustainable BioFuels.
