Event Overview:

Annual Meeting

At the meeting, cooperative leaders from across the country will gather to celebrate the strength of the cooperative network, to conduct important association business, and to focus on how we–as cooperatives–can continue our mission of safely providing cooperative members with affordable and reliable electricity.

The Annual Meeting & Expo are loaded with opportunities to network with co-op peers, learn from industry experts, and discuss critical resolutions that define the association’s mission.

Technology Takes Center Stage at TechAdvantage

TechAdvantage is the leading technology conference designed exclusively for electric cooperative professionals engaged in C-level, engineering, operations, IT, purchasing and supply, and marketing decision-making.  Learn how to improve performance, increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve member services with a wide range of sessions, workshops, learning labs and networking opportunities engineered to generate powerful ideas and technology solutions.

The Best Ideas Start at the TechAdvantage Expo

With more than 300 vendors, the TechAdvantage Expo is the place to experience the latest tools, technologies and services that will increase your co-op’s efficiency. The Expo offers a vital source of knowledge and information on current and emerging technology and energy products, with demonstrations and representatives on hand to address your most critical challenges.

Attendee Information:

More than networking, TechAdvantage delivers real tools and knowledge that empower you to build successful co-ops in today’s competitive energy marketplace.
