WPPI Energy Annual Meeting

September 13 - 15, 2023 • Blue Harbor Resort • Sheboygan, Wis.

For the WPPI membership, our guiding purpose could not be clearer.

By partnering with like-minded, locally owned utilities, our members share the resources, technology and expertise required to help their communities thrive. This has been the case for well over 40 years, and today this unity of purpose remains as strong as ever. Our shared strength through joint action will help us keep leading the way.

Please join your fellow members for the fall annual meeting to reflect on the accomplishments of the past year and to learn more about what is ahead for the electric power industry.
