NHA 2020/2021 Events Update – First ever Hydraulic Power Month taking place virtually October 2020

A few months ago we made the difficult decision to cancel Waterpower Week in Washington 2020 and postpone the International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) to 2021 due to the impacts and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was the result of our extensive conversations with NHA’s Board of Directors, the Ocean Energy Systems’ (OES) Executive Committee, and feedback from our membership.

ICOE is rescheduled for April 28-30, 2021 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC. It will be held at the same time as Waterpower Week in Washington 2021, which will also take place at the Washington Hilton.

After the success of the 2020 NHA Northeast Regional Virtual Meeting, we elected to hold some of our upcoming meetings virtually. These include the 2020 NHA Alaska Regional Virtual Meeting and the 2020 Northwest Regional Virtual Meeting/Workshop. The Hydraulic Power Committee (HPC) will be hosting a virtual event every Wednesday in October of 2020, called HPC Month, during which each webcast will focus on a different “theme” related to hydropower projects.

We will continue communicating with you via NHA Today and email alerts to provide up-to-date information.

The safety of our staff, members, and attendees is the highest priority. As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, NHA remains open for business, leveraging on-line tools to share industry insights and advocating on your behalf here in Washington and in the state / regional energy policy debates.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
