In today’s uncertain political and regulatory environment, it is certain that a younger generation with a fresh perspective will use the knowledge that utilities have collected over the past century to discover solutions to existing and new industry challenges.

The association strives to provide the best professional development, education and networking opportunities, and also bestows an Emerging Leader Award every May at the Spring Management, Engineering and Operations Conference. The Awards program is not just about desk decorations – we connect you with industry leaders, other young professionals and thought provoking individuals to help you harness your potential while you discover your best career path.
