About This Conference

GCPA is devoted to providing education and networking activities for electric power professionals in markets along the Gulf Coast, including Mexico, ERCOT and MISO South. GCPA is excited to now have a monthly meeting in Mexico City and we return this year to Mexico City for a full day conference. 

This conference was planned by a committee of subject matter experts currently working in Mexico. They brought a wealth of knowledge and business contacts to the table and generously volunteered their time to assemble this terrific agenda. GCPA is grateful for their contributions, and you as conference attendees will benefit from their efforts.

What would a GCPA event be without networking? You will have the opportunity to meet and interact with many of your peers in the electric power and industrial sector throughout the day. In addition, please plan on staying for the reception immediately following the last conference session. Mix and mingle, establish new contacts, re-connect with former contacts, and make post-event dinner plans to continue the conversations. What a terrific way to increase your networking opportunities.

GCPA is firmly committed to the Mexican market and look forward to this conference and future events. We hope that many of you will consider joining GCPA as corporate or individual members and will volunteer to assist us in planning future events.

Kim Casey
Executive Director, Gulf Coast Power Association
