The Midwestern Governors Association held its seventh annual transmission meeting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in October.

An important component of securing and modernizing the grid is a “fix it first” approach. The MGA hosted its seventh annual conference, which provided an opportunity to learn how the Midwest is safeguarding and improving the region's electric grid. Topics covered at this meeting included disaster preparedness, micro grids, distributed generation, and cybersecurity.
