2023 100 Year Celebration International Conference

2023 Conference Logo with Dates
It’s a monumental once-in-a-hundred-years conference and, this fall, it finally happens! WiNUP’s centennial celebration will be held September 24-27 at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino in Niagara Falls, New York. The hotel is just a short walk from a universal bucket list destination, Niagara Falls.

Though the conference will commemorate WiNUP’s founding in 1923 - when seven women, all in the electrical field, forged a friendship at an industry meeting at Association Island, New York - its focus will extend beyond the past to tackle relevant issues facing us today.

Through a variety of panel discussions with representation from multiple types of utilities and presentations by industry experts, the conference will explore timely topics like sustainable investments, renewable energy and hydropower. As well, calculated risk-taking and adapting to change are key topics.
