Virtual Round Table:
Breakout!

9 AM - 12:30 PM | Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Join us June 30th for a virtual round table covering hot topics in the public power industry. Members will meet in small groups to share insights into best practices, discuss current programs, and help provide a road map for the future. 

The MEAM-CES conference committee has put together a slate of breakout sessions where groups of five to ten participants will meet virtually to discuss topics of interest. These sessions will be recorded and shared with all MEAM-CES members through the forum at www.MEAM-CES.org.

How it Works

  • Breakout sessions will be scheduled for 60 minute blocks and will be recorded for future viewing.

  • A final 60 minute wrap-up webinar will provide an overview of each session and include all participants.

  • Each breakout will consist of a give-and-take conversation with 5-10 participants in a virtual round table format.

  • All participants will be scheduled for two breakout sessions and the wrap-up webinar briefing and Q&A.

  • Session assignments will be made based on level of interest and total number of participants for each topic.

  • Each breakout session will have a moderator who will record the discussion and provide a briefing during our final wrap-up webinar. The moderator will also help keep the session on topic and on schedule.

  • There is no fee for MEAM members to participate.

  • Register by June 21, 2021 to secure your spot!
