The keynote speaker on April 5 is Edward Chow ’71, ’72M, Senior Fellow at the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a Glidden Visiting Professor this year at Ohio University. Chow earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics in 1971 and an MAIA in 1972 in Southeast Asia Studies from the College of Arts & Sciences.

The 2018 symposium builds off of an inaugural event last year in Athens. More than 80 attendees from across the state and region joined the OHIO research team to discuss the changing landscape of shale development for both communities and businesses.

The focus of these events, as well as the research work at OHIO, is to identify ways in which communities and businesses can attract, develop, and retain the benefits derived from shale development activity using innovative policies, partnerships and technologies for a stronger energy future.
