Scott Kornfeld

Website & Social Media Content Specialist

Though born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, most of Scott’s upbringing occurred in Houston. He then went to the University of Texas at Austin where he earned a BS in Communications: Radio-TV-Film. While there he took some computer classes as a foreign language substitute and that turned out to help him more than he would have imagined as it was that background that often set him apart from his co-workers in several of his ensuing positions. After stints in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, Scott returned to Austin where he discovered the renewable energy industry. Starting out as a volunteer, Scott obtained a part-time position that evolved into a full time position with the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association (now Alliance), aka TREIA, where he took care of the office LAN and computer equipment, the main website and two other special event websites in addition to processing the invoicing and tracking for memberships plus event exhibitor, sponsorship, and attendee registration. Scott joined the GCPA in 2016 led the recent project with an outside vendor to develop and implement their new website, and also maintains their website, blog, and social media presence.
