Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) is hosting the 2019 Nuclear Non-operating Owners Group (NNOG) conference on March 26-28, 2019, at the Kimpton Hotel Vintage which is located in downtown Portland, Oregon. (https://www.hotelvintage-portland.com/)
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 and advance preparation is not necessary to attend the NNOG conference. The program delivery is “group live.”
This year’s conference will feature a tour of the NuScale facility and two full days of presentations. There will also be a reception that Wednesday evening to promote networking among nuclear colleagues. Attendees can expect to receive approximately 20 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits for attending all conference events.
The Kimpton Hotel Vintage has extended a special rate of $199 per night for the conference, including 3 days prior and after the conference dates. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Portland in walking distance of many great restaurants and shops, including Powell Bookstore which is the world’s largest independent bookstore. The hotel features a 24-hour fitness center, evening social hour with wine tastings, and a game lounge with billiards and SHUFFLE BOARD!
Information concerning registration, hotel accommodations and speakers for the conference will be mailed in December. You may also monitor the www.nnog.com website for updates.
