Message from the CEO

Steve Skodak, CAE, CRE

In 2023, we saw a passion for this industry that we have never seen before.

State Energy Offices invested in our team to complete needs assessments to identify workforce gaps in several states across the country. Industry organizations partnered with us to lay the groundwork for a Registered Apprenticeship Program. The White House invested in our industry knowing that clean energy is essential to a sustainable economy, and we spent the year preparing our association members with ways to use pieces of historic legislation.

In 2023, we put all of our funding to work for the contractors, organizations, and partners we represent. But we also invested inward. We transitioned to a fully remote workforce, we expanded our staff, and we continued work on our policies and practices to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive association.

As a nonprofit, we cannot do this work without the people who invest in us–both monetarily and with their time. I am incredibly grateful to our staff, Board members, Allies, Affiliates, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters. 2023 showed us that we’re not the only ones passionate about comfortable, healthy, and efficient housing.

As the CEO, I am proud of all of the accomplishments presented in this impact report.

To continued collaborations and success,

"Serving as a VISTA for BPA left me with invaluable skills and community relations that I will value for the rest of my career. Although I was the first, the mentorship and guidance I received made it feel like BPA has had a VISTA for years before myself. BPA is not only an incredible host site for VISTAs, but their mission truly promotes connection to the greater community."
– Hailey Champagne, BPA's first AmeriCorps VISTA
