Cancelled: 13th Annual Energetic Women Conference
June 16-18, 2020 | Pittsburgh, PA

MEA Energy Association (MEA), the supporting organization of Energetic Women, has been closely monitoring the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) along with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes of Health. We have also been following the impact on the companies we serve—gas and electric utilities, industry partners, and contractors. Out of concern for you and the safety of your communities, the Energetic Women Conference scheduled for June 16-18, 2020 in Pittsburgh, PA has been cancelled.

We make this announcement with a heavy heart, but we also know it is the right decision. While we hope the situation will be different by early this summer, we cannot predict the new normal for you or your companies. Unfortunately, postponement was not a possibility due to the limited availability on meeting space and sleeping rooms at the hotel. We respect your need to plan what you can and remain flexible elsewhere, just as we are planning and flexing where possible.

MEA and Energetic Women remain committed to preparing women within the energy industry for leadership roles in operations and engineering. We plan to offer you this year’s topics and content at the 2021 conference in addition to researching and planning more professional development opportunities throughout the year. We promise to keep Energetic Women a vital resource in your development plan! In the meantime, save the dates of June 15-17, 2021 for the Energetic Women Conference in Detroit, MI.
