Have your say on utility forum agendas

If you have ever wondered why industry meetings don't address issues you and your colleagues face every day, this is your chance to be heard. The program committees of two regional utility-focused events are seeking input on agenda topics. 

The Utility Energy Forum, May 3-5, hosts a Pre-Forum Workshop specifically for utility and government attendees, and would like your suggestions for discussion topics for the workshop. Share your concerns and challenges in an online survey         by Feb. 15

The Rocky Mountain Utility Efficiency Exchange, Sept. 27-29, is accepting presentation proposals on "Initiatives worth Imitating." Formats range from five-minute "snapshots" to poster sessions to roundtable discussions. ​Proposals         are due Feb. 27

You do not have to be attending either event to participate in the surveys.
