The EUCG Fall 2022 Workshop in Memphis,Tennessee, took place at The Historic Peabody Memphis. Our attendees loved the elegance and history of this hotel, and delighted in the daily march of the five resident mallards! Our Keynote Speaker, Matt Crozat, Executive Director for Strategy & Policy Development at the Nuclear Energy Institute, delivered an insightful look at the "The Energy Policy Landscape for the 2020s and Beyond". The attendees were excited to once again be seeing old friends, and networking with new colleagues again! We are looking forward to giving our members another great workshop experience this spring.
Registration for the Spring 2023 Workshop is available online. The workshop is in-person, but still offers a virtual component in order to include as many EUCG members as possible.
For the 2023 Spring Workshop, an initial registration fee of $1,400.00 will be paid on a per company/per committee basis. That fee includes an in-person attendee registration, and unlimited virtual attendees from your company to enjoy that specific EUCG committees' program. Once your company has paid the committee workshop registration fee, 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 $1,000.00.
We are excited that we’re able to host these hybrid workshops, which continue to bring the best of both worlds and maximize participation.

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 Spring 2023 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, April 18th 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.
