Our conference was started by an Illinois utility seeking to gather and share ideas and resources with other Midwest utilities. It became so valuable and successful that other utilities wanted to attend. The conference invitation list was expanded to include attendees from other utilities in the United States. In 2002 the Illinois utility was merged with another utility and was no longer able to sustain the conference.
The conference invites a "utility" company each year to be the Honorary Host of the conference and moves to a new city and state. Attendees are provided with the opportunity to see new locations and gain valuable insights of their peers.
Today, the conference continues to grow and reach new audiences throughout the United States, Canada and many other countries; providing a warm and friendly atmosphere for attendees to have the opportunity to learn and share time sensitive and valuable information.
