The Leadership Forum is a new event series, brought to you by T&D World. This series is designed to advance the entire industry through a serious, comprehensive and compelling dialogue on the key issues of the day. 

The first in this series deals with Wildfire & Risk Mitigation. This conference is designed for and by utility professionals who are engaged and responsible for the strategy and tactics to develop a robust solution for their organizations and customers.

The consequences of this issue threaten a utility’s existence. The problem is exceedingly complex across the organization. Tracks will include:

  • Risk Management & Planning
  • Technology Innovations
  • Prevention & Response Best Practices 

Our goal is to create a forum for utilities to learn and share their processes and solutions. We hope to bring together a broad representation of utility personnel that are on the ground, dealing with these challenges every day and actively creating solutions.

We’re currently seeking best-in-class speakers to share their knowledge this May in Portland. If you or a colleague have a story to share, please submit a session proposal on our website.

We look forward to hearing from you.
