We’re excited to invite you and MEEA members to the 2017 Midwest Energy Policy Conference with the theme Energy Driving the Economy. In the ever-evolving landscape of energy, the economic impact of the development and delivery of energy has changed. This year’s sessions will provide MEEA and its members an opportunity to prepare for what’s coming to the Midwest and what role they can play. Please share this information with them.
