MIPSYCON Planning Committee

Call for Committee Members

This could be your opportunity to become an influencer in the power systems industry! The Minnesota Power Systems Conference (MIPSYCON) planning committee is looking for planning committee members.

The Conference has provided electric utility engineers and consultants the opportunity to stay abreast of today’s power system technology since 1964. The committee includes a diverse membership of individuals and a balance of content representatives from utilities, vendor/manufacturers, consultant/developers, regulatory, technical associations, and related industries.

The current committee will review applications of potential new members in January, and new members will join the committee for the first planning meeting in February. Please submit your application by Monday, December 6, 2021.
