TMEPA Annual Rally & Reception will be held on Tuesday, February 13th, at the Hermitage Hotel. This is the day for Tennessee’s municipal power companies to visit the General Assembly and talk with legislators about issues and legislation affecting their utilities. There are several rumors about bills that could be filed that would touch how municipal electric utilities do business, so it will be important to make sure you have this event on your calendar.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hermitage for Monday and Tuesday nights. Please call the hotel at 888-888-9414 or 615-244-3121 for your room reservations as soon as possible. Be sure to identify yourself as being with TMEPA, Group Code 1802TENNES_001. Ask for the TMEPA room rate of $269.00 single/double. The cut-off date for room reservations is Wednesday, January 17, 2018.
