The MREA IT User Group's mission is to bring co-op IT professionals together to learn and share information. This group recurrently discusses issues from billing software and smart grid, to utility social networking concepts, to identity theft—Just to name a few. The invited presenters and round-table discussions have proven helpful to attendees.  So helpful, in fact, the once-annual event has blossomed into a bi-annual meeting! Those of you who either bear the title of the Information Technology Manager, those who have just assumed these responsibilities over the years as well as employees in the co-op engineering and operations departments will want to attend this one-day meeting.

Guest speaker: TBD
