Ross Energy Club
The Ross Energy Club (REC) is a group of ambitious MBA students and then some who share a passion for energy. REC's mission is to educate its members and provide access to employment opportunities ranging from traditional energy trading to renewable energy finance to new energy technologies. This variety of interests enables cross-pollination of students' knowledge from past and current experiences with University and corporate resources. REC currently has nearly 200 members, and an executive board of fourteen officers lead the club's activities.
REC provides regular opportunities for members to learn about the energy industry and meet energy company representatives. Recent speakers include representatives from ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell Wind, Pacific Gas and Electric, Duke Energy, National Grid, and SunEdison. REC also works with members to form recruiting strategies for both internships and full time positions, including resume reviews, mock interviews and peer counseling opportunities. REC provides educational sessions on different sectors of the energy industry (from renewables to fossil fuels) to educate members with all levels of familiarity about the industry and its technologies. REC sponsors field trips for students to gain first hand experience at leading energy companies. Recent visits include guided tours of Next Energy, an alternative energy business accelerator, and ITC Transco, the nation's first fully independent electric transmission business. Opportunities for financial assistance to fund energy related conference trips are also available to REC members.

Michigan Energy Club
The Michigan Energy Club (MEC) is a student-run group composed of students and non-students alike interested in energy topics. MEC’s mission is to provide an interdisciplinary forum to discuss the general topic of energy from a technological, policy, economic, and commercial perspective. We do this through member-led energy discussions, guest speakers, field trips, and collaboration with various energy clubs on campus and with other universities. MEC aims to bridge the gap between various schools at the university as well as the local community to allow people with a variety of backgrounds to share their expertise on energy issues. The MEC is open to anyone regardless of background and training interested in learning more about energy and energy initiatives.
Note: The Michigan Energy Club is looking for Leadership team members - email MECExecCommittee@umich.edu if interested.

MEnergy Law Association
The Michigan Energy Law Association (MEnergy) was originally created to address an interest in energy law that was not being addressed by the current curriculum offerings. MEnergy not only advocates for an increased course selection for energy law issues, but also directly provides resources for Michigan Law students who are interested in energy law. MEnergy hosts speakers and holds events tailored toward bringing more information and opportunities to learn about this area of the law to students. MEnergy also partners with other student organizations at the Law School and across the wider University of Michigan campus. In addition to educational and academic events, MEnergy also offers social and volunteer opportunities for involvement.
