PMA Conferences

Every year, The Power Marketing Association holds the following conferences, among others:

The Annual Electric Rate Derivatives Conference and Exposition, held each Spring. The first, and the largest conference on this key subject for power marketers.

The Annual Implementing Retail Access Conference held each Spring in Washington, DC. PMA’s annual update on the key issues in retail implementation— the most sophisticated event if its kind.

PMA’s Annual Meeting and Exposition: Strategies for Success In Power Marketing, a massive, multi-track conference treating all the key issues in power marketing at the wholesale and retail level. Each Fall, in Washington, DC.

Special-interest topics— as required by events. In the past, this has included special sessions on FERC’s Order 888, among others.

Each conference has at least one seminar given in conjunction with it, generally the day before, by a PMA-certified trainer. Special subjects include "Fundamentals of Power Marketing," "Pricing Electricity," and others as appropriate.

PMA Corporate Members also get free booth space at PMA’s three expositions, held in conjunction with its Annual Strategies for Success meeting, The PMA Implementing Retail Access Conference and The PMA Electric Rate Derivatives Conference.
