Please join the Green Empowerment family in thanking Aaron Liss for his contributions to our organization over the years! It is with warmest regards that we wish Aaron success in his next chapter beginning after March.
Aaron started his adventure with Green Empowerment more than five years ago as an intern in Nicaragua working with our longtime partner AsoFenix. It was during that time that his passion for our mission took root, and since then his commitment to our projects, partners and organization has helped us grow both internationally and as a leader in our Portland community.
His tireless efforts to connect the various actors in the Oregon international development community began with the establishment of Development Drinks, an ongoing monthly networking event in Portland and culminated with the successful launch of GlobalPDX last week.
Over the last 5 years, Aaron rose through the ranks to the position of Technical Director. He has represented Green Empowerment in over a dozen countries, and has provided invaluable support to renewable energy, clean water, and other community development projects with our partners across the globe. We will not only miss his technical expertise, but also his jack-of-all trades skills in the office and the enlightenment we receive from his random trivia. Thanks for everything, Aaron!
As with any change, there emerges opportunity. We are excited to begin recruiting for a Technical Manager to build on our history of success, help us to expand our impact, and support our partners in delivering renewable energy, clean water and complementary appropriate technology solutions to rural communities.
