University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee | Conference Center
161 West Wisconsin Avenue | Milwaukee, WI 53203

The Midwestern Governors Association will hold its seventh annual invite-only transmission meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 30-31, 2017.

An important component of modernizing the grid is a “fix it first” approach. The MGA is hosting a conference, Grid Security and Modernization: Hardening the Midwestern Grid. This event is an opportunity to learn how the Midwest is safeguarding and improving the region's electric grid. Topics to be covered at this meeting will include disaster preparedness, micro grids, distributed generation, and cybersecurity.


Should you be able to attend, please register by Tuesday, October 16 via this link. Please note that while there is no registration fee for state or federal government staff and MGA partners, there is a fee for all other attendees.
