Annual Meeting 2013

Southern States Energy Board 53rd Anniversary

Date: Sunday, October 13, 2013 – Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Location: Beau Rivage, 875 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, Mississippi 39530

Among the most critical issues facing America today are the availability, reliability, cost and environmental impact of energy resources. A strong and viable strategic energy policy is critical to sustaining robust economic growth to enhance the quality of life for America’s future generations. For fifty-three years, the Southern States Energy Board has been the regional forum where government and industry leaders collaborate and cooperate to design policy and technology solutions that will shape our nation’s prosperity and security in a global economy.

We are in the process of organizing an outstanding program that will recognize the leadership and accomplishments of the Board and its collaborative partners throughout the region and the country. As one of SSEB’s partners, I encourage you to participate and support SSEB’s 53rd Annual Meeting in Biloxi, Mississippi, on October 13-15, 2013.
