“It’s hard to think back to where we were in late February,” said Elizabeth Funderburk, Growth Energy vice president of communication and public affairs. “We had just come out of our annual meeting — a great opportunity to showcase all that our industry had been able to achieve while also leaning into the year ahead. Weeks later, COVID completely altered the landscape. Our commitment to effectively advocating on our industry’s critical issues didn’t change. What did change was how we would communicate.”

This issue focuses on the transitions we’ve all had to make in reaction to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We take a look at new initiatives to support teleworking and virtual presence, profile another biofuels champion, South Dakota’s Dusty Johnson, check in with Universal Technical Institute’s education efforts, and get a taste of South East Asian street food.

We hope you enjoy this issue and we always welcome your feedback. Stay healthy!
