Happy New Year! As EAIS evolves to best meet member needs in 2015, we have lots of exciting news:

  1. We’ve moved! Our new address is 3068 99th Street, Urbandale, IA 50322. Please update your records to reflect the change. We are sharing space with Jim Townsend of Townsend Co./Southern Bleacher Company and are grateful for his generosity.
  2. We have 6 new members to welcome: Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, Harmony, Mount Pleasant, East Marshall, Seymour, and Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock. Thank you to these schools and to all renewing members! EAIS is steadily growing and as a result, Iowa’s schools are gaining more knowledge, savings and voice in energy.
  3. In a couple of months, EAIS will be looking for a new energy efficiency assistant. This position will be based out of our Urbandale office and will begin with 10-20 hours per week. If you happen to know a college student needing an internship or anyone in that part of the state interested in part-time work, please contact EAIS executive director, Julie Weisshaar.
  4. EAIS is in the beginning stages of collaborating with the Iowa Department of Education and others on an important new support requested by Iowa schools. This new service will be available first as a pilot project to EAIS members, so stay tuned over the next several weeks for more information as details are ironed out…
