TechAdvantage – THE technology event for electric co-op professionals



August 14 Update

Amid ongoing uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and its specific implications for large events, travel, and public health and safety, NRECA has decided to shift our in-person 2021 TechAdvantage Experience to a virtual event. This meeting, combined with the co-located NRECA Annual Meeting (which is also shifting online), typically convenes thousands of electric cooperative leaders, employees and directors from 48 states, as well as the staff and memberships of several national cooperative organizations and NRECA partners, speakers, exhibitors, and international guests. The health and safety of our members, guests and staff is of paramount concern.

NRECA is approaching this decision as an opportunity to enrich and expand our technology conference and expo, as well as our annual member meeting, to new audiences in new ways. We will focus our efforts on quality programming, more opportunities for education and training, and meaningful interaction with industry leaders and technology partners. We will be working hard over the coming weeks and months to iron out details on transitioning our expo and sponsorship opportunities and we ask for your patience and understanding during this process.

Please keep these TechAdvantage Experience dates on your calendar. We look forward to coming together online to explore leading-edge strategies and share advantages in science, technology and other industry areas that will benefit America’s electric cooperatives well into the 21st century.
