Outside the Industry:

In 2018, Mr. Hoffman was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Montgomery County Partners for Animal Well-Being, the dedicated non-profit partner of the Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (MCASAC). Mr. Hoffman is devoted to advocating for the animal of Montgomery County, and has helped raise money, improve shelter conditions, and act as a voice for the community.

In addition, Mr. Hoffman has been a donor and/or is an active member of several organizations such as; the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the American Cancer Society, the Maryland Special Olympics, the Kidney Foundation, the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Wounded Warriors, Fisher House, and many others. Mr. Hoffman is also a valued supporter of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies..


Mr. Hoffman has and continues to be highly involved in energy policy by interfacing directly with the local, state, and federal governments. He also formed two non-profit organizations, one in 2016 and on in 2018, both with the intention of addressing the needs of the energy-industry.

The 501(c)(3) Sensible Energy Matters of America (SEMA) was founded in August 2016 to address the need for a sensible energy policy which considers the strengths and weaknesses of all energy sources. Mr. Hoffman has worked closely with the Oil, Natural Gas, Coal, Wind and Solar, Hydro and biodegradable communities to develop a Sensible Energy Policy that values the unique strengthens and weaknesses of each energy source and benefits all energy sources to the detriment of none and for the benefit of all America.

The 501(C)6 United Nuclear Industry Alliance (UNI) was founded in late 2018 as a Supply Chain business alliance, whose mission is to: create innovative business relationships among its Members; create innovative business relationships between its Members and Utilities; facilitate effective local, state, and federal government support that reenergizes the U.S. Supply Chain community; and maximize Members’ ability to compete in the nuclear industry domestically and internationally.

Additionally, EXCEL has sponsored all of the ANS Utility Working Conferences, ANS National and Winter Meetings, and has hosted a series of meeting with UNI to get important conversations started about the industry and how we can help ensure its successful future.
