2017 NNOG Conference

April 25 – April 28, 2017

Phoenix, Arizona

Dear Colleague:

Salt River Project (SRP) and El Paso Electric (EPE) are hosting the 2017 Nuclear Nonoperating Owners Group (NNOG) conference on April 26-28, 2017, at The Renaissance Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.

The NNOG conference provides opportunities to learn about the commercial nuclear industry and the challenges facing non-operating owners. The conference will cover an overview of nuclear industry issues and, after the conference, attendees will have current knowledge of technical and accounting issues facing non-operating owners of nuclear plants.  Specific areas of knowledge will include plant oversight and regulatory concerns.  The conference agenda covers technical, auditing and accounting issues, and the material is suitable for those with all levels of industry knowledge.  The learning objectives are that conference participants will learn to identify regulatory and technical issues facing their plants and be able to formulate strategies to address those issues.  There are no prerequisites or advance preparation necessary to attend the NNOG conference.  The program delivery is “group live.”

This year’s conference features two-and-a-half days of first-class presentations, discussions and a reception on Wednesday evening to promote networking among nuclear colleagues. Attendees can expect to receive approximately 17 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for attending all conference events.  As with past conferences, a pre-conference tour is planned for Tuesday, April 25, 2017.  The preconference tour is currently being planned and organized for the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant and the Regional Response Center. Please monitor the NNOG website for updates on the preconference tour.

The Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel is steps away from the light rail, which offers eco-friendly transportation to Phoenix and Tempe’s top attractions, as well as the airport. It is steps away from the best downtown Phoenix has to offer including the historic Orpheum Theater, restaurants, night life and museums.

The Renaissance Hotel has extended the conference rate of $249 per night for the conference, including 2 days prior and after the conference dates

Attendees are encouraged to monitor NNOG’s website (www.nnog.com) for a detailed agenda and conference updates.
