A few years ago GCPA members began to request that GCPA provide educational and networking events for areas along the Gulf Coast in markets outside of but adjacent to ERCOT. This conference marks the fourth annual GCPA conference dealing with SPP regional issues. A team of industry experts has planned a conference that provides insight and expert opinions regarding transmission, generation, the market and inter-regional issues.

We are pleased that once again the conference starts with a keynote presentation from SPP Board Chairman Jim Eckelberger. The morning sessions that follow focus on the market and future generation. After lunch, we will hear from Missouri Public Service Commissioner and SPP Regional State Committee Chairman Steve Stoll. The afternoon sessions begin with a look at distributed technologies and moves into inter-regional activities, including the latest on moving Lubbock Power & Light from SPP to ERCOT.  

What would a GCPA event be without networking? You will have the opportunity to meet with your peers in the electric power sector all day, but plan on staying for the reception after the presentations. Mix and mingle, make new contacts, re-establish former contacts and make post-event dinner plans to continue the conversations.

All of this is happening in Dallas at the Westin DFW with free shuttle service from the DFW Airport for those that are staying. A convenient venue for those with busy schedules. We hope you will join us.

Please note that online registration closes on Monday, August 28th at 12 noon. If registration is closed, walk-in registrants are welcome to register onsite at the event on a space available basis. There is a $35 surcharge for walk-in registrations ($25 surcharge for government registrations).
