All IEEE National members are invited to the 50th Annual IEEE PES Transmission & Distribution conference, this April 14th through 17th, at McCormick Place in Chicago! You can attend for free! (valued over $500)

Why attend this conference? For college students:

Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to join us for the popular Collegiate Program! Employers are invited to participate in the Student Job Fair and a variety of exclusive access sponsorship opportunities (see below)! More than 200 students participated in the Collegiate Program at the 2012 T&D event in Orlando! Don’t miss it!

Highlights of the program include a Student Job Fair, a social media fueled frenzy known as the “Infinitely Electrifying Energy Extravaganza (IEEE)” Scavenger Hunt in the exhibit hall, a collegiate reception, eight opportunities to refuel from Monday dinner through Thursday breakfast, a student poster contest with prizes, and a Collegiate/Industry luncheon. These activities will provide networking opportunities with roughly 700 exhibitors and thousands of industry professionals.
