Last Week we lost one of our Board Members in an accident. Our thoughts and love go out to the Petersen family during this difficult time. Over the last six years Justin has been an active member of the IEA serving on many committees and most recently on the board of directors. Justin will be deeply missed, his service to the Industry over the years has been felt by many.
