Related Meetings (EUG & WUG)

In addition to the Utility Council Meetings, Facility Issues typically holds eastern (EUG) and western (WUG) utility group meetings in the winter and summer. These meetings are typically held at the office of a utility participating in the benchmarking program.  The purpose of these meetings are to provide additional regional networking opportunities and discuss specific benchmarking related topics.  (Any employee of a benchmarking participant is welcome to attend either meeting.  Employees from utilities not participating in the benchmarking are welcome but will have a registration fee.  Non-utility company employees are subject to approval.)
