The annual Members Meeting & Fall Workshop is a two-day collaborative forum on the latest trends affecting energy consumers and how utilities and their partners can more effectively meet and exceed the evolving expectations of today’s consumers.
Hosted by Con Edison at their historic headquarters in Manhattan, the 8th annual Members Meeting will also cover the most pertinent areas of need in consumer research and education and where our organization’s efforts can best be focused for 2019.
