The Northwest Hydroelectric Association is pleased to invite members and guests to join us at the 2020 Annual Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Seattle, WA.  This year's program takes a deep dive into subjects that are important to the hydropower industry in the Northwest. The board selected the theme to be #NWHYDRO as we talk about how we communicate around hydro, what the next generation of hydro looks like, how the industry is handling cybersecurity/connectivity, and how to support this renewable resource in the rapidly changing landscape.
