SETS is a joint venture created by the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) to produce trade shows to advance the solar energy industry.

For the past 12 years, Miner has developed and managed trade shows, conferences and education programs in the energy and environment sectors.

In this position he managed sales and marketing for the $20+ million annual Windpower Conference and Exhibition, as well as AWEA’s workshops and $10+ million membership services programs.

During his tenure, Miner helped raise the profile of the show to attract 1,400 exhibitors and 24,000 attendees earning recognition as one of the top 50 trade shows held annually in the United States.

Prior to joining AWEA in 2002, he was manager of education at the Environmental Industry Association, where he developed and executed multiple master educational programs.

Miner has an extensive background in higher education having spent more than 15 years with Prince George’s Community College and the University of Michigan-Flint in a variety of capacities including director of student services operations, program director for the college activities office, alumni director and program coordinator.

Miner will lead day-to-day management and strategic planning for SETS and evaluate new products and techniques to further respond to the needs of the growing solar industry. He will also oversee marketing, communications and brand strategy for the organization’s trade shows, lead development of educational content and develop partnerships and relationships with nonprofits and other organizations that add value and strength to SETS events.
