As CEO of AAEA for twenty years, Norris McDonald has been blessed with a wide variety of experiences. Staff and offices have shifted over the years. His personal and professional circumstances have also shifted over the past two decades. Marriage, divorce, birth, death, up, down and all around -- the ride for him and AAEA is not over yet. Fortunately, AAEA has provided many people with invaluable moments and hopefully we have made a difference. Below you will find important AAEA moments frozen in a snapshot, such as McDonald’s visit with Dr. Jackson, Gustave. A picture is worth a thousand words and we want to provide you with a limitless view. When McDonald worked for the Environmental Policy Center/Institute (now Friends of the Earth) -- 1979 -1985, he organized the first Energy Braintrust during the Congressional Black Caucus Weekend in 1981 for the late Congressman Mickey Leland.
