The Spring 2109 conference was held in San Diego at the Marriott Marquis and hosted by San Diego Gas and Electric April 2 - 5, 2019. We want to thank WESCO for again being our Platinum Sponsor. We also want to thank the Learning Sponsors Milwaukee Tool, American Superconductor, Attitude Systems, and TE Connectivity. The Conference was attended by 110 of the members from Utilitys in the Western United States and also British Columbia. The Conference also saw the largest Vendor Expo in the history of conference. Eighty-three Vendors were in attendance at the Expo. The Western Underground Committee Conference is the best valued Underground and Overhead Utility Networking Conference for your money. It's two and a half days of workshops and networking with other utilities for only $250 for members which includes the always popular sit down fellowship dinner held on Thursday night of the Conference. The Technical Tour at the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier was a highlight also. Pre-Conference Tour on April 2 at the SDGE Training Center was worthwhile and informative to the Members. The Fall Conference will be in Burbank, California hosted by Burbank Water and Power. Stay tuned for details.

Western Underground would like to thank Alan Kasanow, Southern Cal Edison, who stepped up the past year to fill the role of the Vendor Expo Coordinator. In San Diego at the Spring Conference recently he was responsible for the largest number of Vendor increase(30) in the history of Western Underground. Alan is stepping down from that role to allow others to grow and contribute to the Committee and Conference success. Alan is also a past chairman and we will miss his expertise on the board.Read More
