Coalition Meeting Suggestions and Windpower 2013 Fee Waiver

March 23, 2013

To: Governors’ Representatives

From: Larry Pearce

Subject: Coalition Meeting Suggestions and Windpower 2013 Fee Waiver

Coalition Meeting Time and Venue

We plan to schedule a meeting of the governors’ representatives for this fall before state legislatures convene. The meeting will be a day and half with a reception the evening of the first day. The agenda will include state updates and speakers on substantive wind policy issues. Time will be set aside for private policy strategy discussions among governors’ representatives. Travel costs for governors’ representatives will be reimbursed.

Before incurring the costs of planning a meeting, we need some reassurance that we’ll have a strong turnout of representatives. Please let us know if you can likely attend. The timeframe for the meeting is September or October. The meeting will be scheduled for a Thursday and a half day meeting on Friday. The meeting will be held at a destination venue that you can enjoy for a couple days after the meeting ends.

Please let me know if you plan to attend and suggest where you would like the meeting held.

AWEA has graciously waived the Windpower 2013 registration fee ($1,000) for governors’ representatives again this year. Please let me know if you plan to attend by April 8.
