"Smart Wires and Pipes" is the topic at Midwest ENERGY Association's Fall Business Roundtable on September 24 in Kansas City, MO. MEA Business Roundtables provide utility operating executives and related companies with a forum for discussing current issues facing the utility distribution industry. "What I learn by attending the MEA Business Roundtables improves my business practice. There are so many new things happening out there," says Anthony McCain, vice president of field operations for Nicor Gas. "A person can learn an incredible amount by connecting with the other leaders in our field at these events. I find them invaluable, in terms of personal connections. I can go back to Nicor with fresh ideas and try to get some part of the organization to operate more effectively."
