Hometown Connections Annual Meeting
August 26-28, 2019
DoubleTree Hilton Hotel
Annual gathering of Hometown staff, vendor partners, and affiliated joint action agencies/state associations
The Hometown Connections Annual Meeting is where Hometown staff, representatives from affiliated state & regional associations, joint action agencies, and vendor partners gather each year. We will discuss public power industry developments, Hometown products/services, and our marketing program. This meeting provides time for networking—for our vendors to share strategies for selling to public power and for our vendors to hear directly from our sales/marketing affiliates what their members need and how best to interact with them.
Hometown Connections staff/vendors/affiliates will meet 8:30 am to 4:30 pm on Monday, Aug 26, and 8:30 am to noon on Tuesday, Aug 27. Then, Hometown staff will meet with the affiliates only from 1:00 to 4:30 pm on Tuesday and 8:30 am to noon on Wednesday, the 28th. Please download the Annual Meeting Program and the Affiliates Meeting Program.
The agenda will include 5-minute presentations by our vendor partners. We will ask each vendor to summarize their offerings and describe how they are serving community-owned utilities. Specifically, we will ask each vendor to describe a problem faced by a utility client, how the vendor helped solve the problem, and the results. Vendors may use PPT slides and should submit them to Susan Ryba by Friday, August 23.
