EUCG 2022 Fall Workshop
EUCG 2022 Fall Workshop
The EUCG Fall 2022 Workshop is headed to Blues City for the best in benchmarking, best practices, emerging issues, and more! Join us September 25th – 28th at the historic Peabody Memphis for our semi-annual workshop, and benefit from significant opportunities for networking and idea exchange with industry thought leaders from around the globe against the backdrop of legendary Memphis, Tennessee.
The EUCG Spring 2022 Workshop in San Antonio, was our first time meeting back in-person for over two years, and attendees were excited to be networking with new colleagues, and seeing old friends again! We are looking forward to giving our members another great workshop experience this fall!
Registration for the Fall 2022 Workshop is available online. The EUCG Board of Directors made the decision to have this workshop in-person, but to still offer a virtual component in order to include as many EUCG members as possible.
For the 2022 Fall Workshop, a registration fee of $1,150.00 per person will be paid for in-person attendance. Companies in each committee will be given the option to add the virtual component for an additional $250.00. Once your company has paid the virtual registration fee for your committee, any individual at your company may register and participate at no additional fee in the committee sessions virtually. Additional in-person attendees will pay a fee of $1,150.00.
If your company plans to attend virtually only, there will be a one-time registration fee of $1,400.00.
We are again excited to be able to host this hybrid workshop, which we know will bring the best of both worlds and maximize participation.
The in-person registration includes breakfast, lunch, and breaks for the duration of the event, the Welcome Reception on Sunday, September 25th, and the Monday Evening Networking Event.

Executive Director for Strategy & Policy Development, Nuclear Energy Institute
"The Energy Policy Landscape for the 2020s and Beyond"
Companies, states, and now the federal government have been trying to encourage the transition to a low-carbon energy future. The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act creates powerful new incentives for the economy to move towards lower carbon energy options which could dramatically change energy mix over the next twenty years. This presentation will describe the new incentives enacted in this law as well as the broader shifts in the power sector.

Hotel Reservation Information
We are excited to have our Fall 2022 Workshop at The Historic Peabody Memphis Hotel. With a style and tradition befitting one of Memphis' grandest, most legendary hotels, The Peabody Memphis offers a magnificent bridge between the "Blues City's" celebrated past and cosmopolitan present.
Known as the "South's Grand Hotel," The Peabody is legendary for its charm, elegance, gracious hospitality and rich history. This Memphis icon, opened in 1869, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is world-famous for its five resident ducks, who march daily through the lobby at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Nestled in the heart of downtown, the historic, AAA Four-Diamond hotel offers a one-of-a-kind experience just blocks from Beale Street, the Memphis Rock 'n Soul Museum, Fed-Ex Forum, Sun Studio, the Orpheum Theatre, and the Renasant Convention Center.

Virtual Workshop Technology
EUCG is committed to providing every attendee the best workshop experience possible in this hybrid setting. As we did for the previous hybrid workshop, EUCG will again be using WebEx to host the Fall 2022 Workshop. We know many of you are already familiar with, and use WebEx. We have been actively working with each committee to prepare meeting hosts and presenters, and will be offering the same training to any attendee who would like to be walked through the basics of a WebEx meeting.
WebEx training sessions will be held on Tuesday, September 20th at 2:00 pm EST. Training session invites will be sent to each registrant via email. Training is not required, but we encourage anyone unfamiliar with WebEx to attend to enhance your virtual workshop experience. If you have any other WebEx questions, or technical concerns, please contact Don Kaiser (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lindsay Stranzl (email@example.com). Our goal is to make sure that everyone who is attending is comfortable and confident with WebEx, and that each session flows seamlessly and smoothly.
If you cannot attend training, but would like a quick tutorial on WebEx basics, the following links will walk you through anything an attendee would need to know:
