The Executive Planning Committee (EPC) is a distinctive group of senior energy leaders who meet annually to bridge the strategic vision of the WEI Board of Directors and Board Committees, with content and planning for individual programs. The EPC’s efforts culminate over two days, where they meet with their respective business sections of Gas Operations, Electric Operations, Customer Connections and Corporate Services, to address common issues across member organizations. Attendees work together on how to best combine efforts and leverage resources into creating educational track content at both the Customer + Corporate Symposium and the Operations Conference.
Member: $399 USD
Registration includes all materials and associated meals at the conference. Guest passes are available for $100 and allow a personal guest (a spouse or partner who does not work in the energy industry) to accompany a registered attendee at the event. Guest registration includes all meals and receptions, and all program materials.
