It's time for Tampa. Or Vancouver. That is, for the next few days. Then, why don't we meet mid-May in Miami? Our destination soon after, when April showers turn into May flowers, should be the Big D, Dallas. Afterward we can wheel back to Washington.
In mid-June, the need is to go to Nashville. And to never-asleep New York as well. Both, at the very same time. We have no alternative but to split up, to be in two places at once.
After that, during the next week, we need to go to Chicago, to Orlando, to Washington. You must be joking. All three, again at the very same time. Yes, we split up, to be in three places at once. Oh boy.
Before we make it safely to the fourth of July, it's our time to see the queen in Charlotte for a few days. And in mid-July, let's leave for the left coast, to San Diego.
Count em. That's a dozen must-go conferences. American Association of Blacks in Energy is holding its annual meeting this week. As is CAMPUT, the association of Canadian provincial and territorial utility regulators.
American Gas Association is holding its annual financial forum two weeks hence. The following week, there's DistribuTECH and the annual meeting of United States Energy Association. And that's just May.
