Spring Meeting/Conference

Metering - The Game is Changing



2018 SWEMA Spring Meeting/Conference


It’s that time of year again to make plans to attend the 2018 Southwest Electrical Metering Association Spring Meeting to be held June 4th - June 7th, 2018 in Bossier City, Louisiana listed as the best place to live in the state by Money magazine, bordered by the Red River and home to Barksdale Air Force Base. The Bossier City and Shreveport area is well known as "Louisiana's Other Side". The SWEMA 2018 Spring Meeting will be hosted at the Horseshoe Hotel & Casino. The Louisiana Boardwalk is within walking distance, with the Bass Pro Shop, outlet shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and more within the family oriented complex. Just across the river in Shreveport are the Sci-Port Discovery Center and the Shreveport Aquarium.


While the main objective of the SWEMA Spring Meeting is to foster our mutual interest of the art and science of Electricity Metering, it’s also about visiting with old acquaintances and making new ones, too!  You’ll have ample opportunity to do just this as we’ve planned several fun social events.  The fun fest begins with the 29th annual “Tom & Jerry Golf Tournament” on the morning of Monday, June 4th at the Northwood Hills Golf and Country Club, followed up by a Monday evening Flavor's of New Orleans themed reception hosted by the SWEMA vendor members. Then on Tuesday join us for a South of the Border Fiesta at the Horseshoe's Whiskey Roadhouse. We’ll have great food from the Big Easy and free flowing drinks to celebrate SWEMA and spend time enjoying the company of our fellow utility personnel.


On Wednesday, there will be an opportunity to experience any number of activities, depending on what interests you most. Whether you decide to enjoy dinner at Jack Binion's Steak House and a night at the casino, or venture outside to visit shops, micro-breweries, museums amd more, it will be an adventure for all!
