Electrify the Big Sky

The Electrify the Big Sky conference, originally scheduled for October 19, 2021, will be postponed until spring 2022.

With the upswing in COVID-19 cases across the state, and with speakers and attendees traveling from across the country, the prudent and safe thing to do is to postpone the event.

We will work with the University of Montana and slated guest speakers to select a new date for the spring, and will make that known as soon as a date has been chosen. 

All tickets and event sponsorships will transfer to the new date, or they will be refunded by request.

For more information, please contact Ryan Hall at MECA, at 406-761-8333, or Mark Hayden at Missoula Electric Cooperative at 406-541-4433.
