Pre-webinar Survey

Greetings SEM Professionals and Colleagues,
Thank you for completing this brief pre-survey to make this North American Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Collaborative webinar more compelling and valuable for your time.
 
In this webinar, we'll discuss "SEM Lite", the notion of a "lighter SEM program" that:
  1. requires less customer time, 
  2. requires less program budget, 
  3. is appropriate for smaller customers,
  4. any/all of the above.

We'll share what's worked, what hasn't, and where development is headed.
 
Thank you so much!
 
Best,
Chad and the rest of the North American SEM Collaborative leadership team (Greg, Katie, Walt, John, Chellie, Peter, Giselle, Derek, and Wendy)
