Join us in Coeur d’Alene

NWPPA’s 82nd Annual Conference and Membership Meeting will be held in person in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, May 22–25. Taking inspiration from the English translation of the name of this city, lake, and tribe, our theme for 2022 is Public Power: The Heart of the Community.

This will be NWPPA’s first combined in-person Annual Business Meeting and Annual Conference since 2019. It will be a great opportunity to hear from your peers and other leaders who are cognizant of the public power mission and charting the future of our industry.

In the interest of your utility, your members, employees, and communities, don’t miss this exciting in-person learning and networking opportunity. Come reconnect with your colleagues at The Coeur d’Alene Resort!

Learning The conference program will be packed with industry experts discussing some of the hottest issues. Speakers on power supply, reliability, and markets in the West, including the administrators of both the Western Area Power Administration and the Bonneville Power Administration, will give insights on the quickly evolving set of energy challenges for the region. Other speakers will touch on infrastructure funding strategies, wildfire mitigation, disaster response, cybersecurity, cryptocurrency loads, electric vehicle implementation, and other topics. Additionally, you won’t want to miss inspirational keynote speaker Derreck Kayongo, who fled civil war in Uganda when he was 10 years old and persevered to become a successful entrepreneur and founder of the Global Soap Project.

Networking—The Annual Conference and Membership Meeting brings together utility industry leaders from throughout the Northwest. Public power truly is the heart of the community, and one of the best ways to serve our communities is to learn from others and to share our own experiences. Connect during the conference, meetings, banquet, or golf on The Coeur d’Alene Resort course, which is famous for its floating green. And at the Annual Awards Banquet, honor your colleagues who have helped our industry thrive.

Member Representation—In addition to networking and learning opportunities, the Annual Membership Meeting provides a venue for utility leaders to come together and decide how NWPPA can best serve our utilities and public power in the region. The Government Relations Committee meeting and an NWPPA Board of Trustees meeting will be held Monday, May 23. Both meetings are open to all members. Then, at the Annual Business Meeting, we will vote on new board members and deliberate over our 2022 legislative resolutions.
