Bud Weinstein, adjunct professor of business economics and associate director of the Maguire Energy Institute, Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and Nicholas Renter, regional sales director for Merrill DataSite Dallas will serve on the panels.

Conference participants will leave informed of the key issues and facts that will shape the policy debate and influence North America’s energy future.

“We are in the midst of one of the greatest policy debates on the future of energy production in our nation’s history and with energy independence potentially within our grasp, this has never been more critical,” said Mark Wasem, partner in the energy practice at Fulbright & Jaworski. “This conference will offer discussions on the facts and science that will drive the critical policy debate on the future of North American energy.”

“The scale of this conference has already attracted a ‘Who’s Who’ of industry executives, CEOs and policy advisors," said Edward J. Dawson, chairman, president and CEO of Capital Alliance. “Attendees will gain substantial insight into the debate surrounding energy policy, including who the beneficiaries are, where global capital will be invested and how technology is leading to new opportunities.
