Established in 1997
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 utilities throughout the
United States and continued until 2002 when the
Illinois utility was merged with another utility and was
no longer able to sustain the conference.
An original board member, Amanda Johnson
(previously with a Midwest utility), received numerous
requests to bring the conference back. She was
successful in doing so.
Amanda asked Rose Clemensen, a past board
member (previously with a West coast utility) to assist
her with the conference.
The conference invites a new utility each year to be the
Honorary Host of the conference and each year, the
conference moves to a new city and state providing all
attendees with the opportunity to see new locations
and gain valuable insights of other utilities that they
would not normally have the opportunity to experience.
Our conference continues to grow and reach new
audiences throughout the United States, Canada and
many other countries.
