The 2005 Nuclear Energy Assembly

Sorry for the light posting over the past few days, but everyone here at NEI has been very busy preparing for our annual Nuclear Energy Assembly.

It's our biggest event of the year, and all hands are on deck these days, so to speak. This year's meeting will take place from May 16-18 at the Fairmont Hotel here in Washington.

The speakers lined up for this year's event, billed as "Nuclear Energy 2005: A Time of Opportunity", include NEI President and CEO Skip Bowman, Senators James Inhofe and Pete Domenici, Energy Secretary Sam Bodman, Congressman Joe Barton, NRC Chairman Nils Diaz and Robert McGhee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Progress Energy and NEI's Vice Chairman.

Also speaking on Tuesday, May 17 will be one of our contributors here at NEI Nuclear Notes, Lisa Shell of Dominion Generation. Lisa is also incoming president of North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN), a professional association for young nuclear professionals.

I'll be on site at the conference both Tuesday and Wednesday, and I'll try to post links to some of the major policy speeches once they're delivered. I've also been detailed to write a story for our member newsletter about our last speaker, Duke University Men's Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski.
