2019 Sunday Training & Welcome Reception

Reception 5:30-7:00 PM



We invite you to choose between two concurrent courses offered on Sunday before the Conference. Introduction to Depreciation presents a brief overview of major depreciation topics. This course is often used by members preparing for the CDP Exam as well as attendees new to depreciation or who want a review of depreciation topics. Depreciation and Ratemaking Issues is a higher-level course that includes classes on how depreciation fits within the process of utility ratemaking and also testifying pitfalls and tips. A highlight of this course is the Current Issues panel.


Welcome Reception
