Hello Members. We hope all of you, your families, and your co-workers are well. We wanted to update you on the 2020 conference to be held in Long Beach California, hosted by Southern California Edison and Milwaukee Tool. It is unfortunate but we have decided that it is in the best interest of everyone to cancel this year’s conference. Your safety is our number one interest and we just cannot predict what the future will bring.
We also discussed holding a virtual conference but in discussion with members and vendors we believe the face to face interaction and networking is the best way to hold this conference.
The planning team has done an excellent job securing a venue, speakers, and vendors so we would like to take all their hard work and effort and transfer that into the 2021 conference. Thank you very much planning team!
The 2021 IUOTA Conference will be held at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach California from August 16th to August 20th. Southern California Edison and Milwaukee Tool have graciously decided to stay on as host utility and host vendor.
All current registrations with the hotel will be cancelled on June 1st 2020. If you still wish to travel to Long Beach please reach out to the hotel directly and they will honor the rate for the conference.
A new registration link for the conference and hotel will be sent out in October.
In the meantime please continue to post questions or surveys on the Facebook page and through Pat and Mark.
Thank you for your continued support, stay safe.
On behalf of the IUOTA Executive
Amanda Campbell – Vendors
