  • In order to be assured of attending the North American Tour of The Lion King on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 described below under Tuesday Evening Event, you must register to attend the conference by Friday, April 17, 2020.  I must provide a final ticket count to the Buell Theater on April 20th.  I have reserved a block of 250 tickets and will need to release any unused tickets as of April 20th.

    For anyone that registers late and does not have a ticket to The Lion King, they will be welcome to attend only the pre-show reception/dinner in the Seawell Ballroom.


  • The 2020 Spring Accounting Conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt Denver on May 17-20, 2020.  The room block rate for our conference is $209/night plus taxes for single/double occupancy.  You can reserve a room for the conference under the EEI room block using this link to the hotel’s website.  The cut-off date for reserving rooms under the EEI room block is Friday, April 24, 2020, at 12:00 pm MST.

     

    Room reservations can also be made with the hotel’s reservation department by calling (303) 436-1234.  To qualify for the room block rate, please identify yourself as attending the Edison Electric Institute’s Spring Accounting Conference.
  • The Spring Accounting Conference is hosted by the EEI Accounting Standards, Corporate Accounting, Property Accounting & Valuation, and Budgeting & Financial Forecasting Committees and the AGA Accounting Services Committee.

    This meeting is open to any employee of an EEI or AGA member or associate member company.  The conference is not limited to committee members. Typical attendees of this conference include staff, middle, and upper accounting management involved in technical accounting, financial reporting, general accounting, property accounting, depreciation accounting, budgeting, and financial forecasting. 

    This three-day joint EEI/AGA conference provides a forum for members to discuss current issues in the electric utility and natural gas industries and an opportunity for professional development. This meeting features joint committee presentations followed by breakout sessions for Accounting Standards, Corporate Accounting, Property Accounting, and Budgeting & Financial Forecasting.  Industry professionals and leaders in the field of utility accounting issues present individual elements. Attendees are encouraged to attend presentations of interest in different breakout sessions.

    The conference qualifies for CPE credits based on the sessions attended – the CPE Notice will be posted when the agenda for the conference has been set.


  • At the Conference, there will be Roundtable Discussions in the breakout sessions.  The Roundtable Discussions are open forums that allow Conference attendees to obtain valuable responses and input from your peers.  Please take advantage of this extremely beneficial opportunity as the Roundtable Discussions are always one of the highest rated sessions of the Conference.

    Closer to the conference dates, the Roundtable Question directions will be sent to the committee members and registered attendees.
  • For our Tuesday evening offsite event, we will attend the North American Tour of The Lion King at the Buell Theater at the Denver Performing Arts Center.  Giraffes strut, birds swoop, and gazelles leap.  The entire Serengeti comes to life as never before.  And as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist.

    More than 95 million people around the world have experienced the awe-inspiring visual artistry, the unforgettable music, and the uniquely theatrical storytelling of this Broadway spectacular – one of the most breathtaking and beloved productions ever to grace the stage.

    At 4:30 pm, we will meet in the hotel lobby (the exact location to be announced at the conference).  We will leave the hotel at 4:40 pm for a short 15-minute walk to the Denver Performing Arts Center.  From 5:00 – 7:00 pm, we will enjoy a reception and dinner in the Seawell Ballroom.  After the reception/dinner, we will proceed to the theater for The Lion King which starts at 7:30 pm  Following the 2.5-hour show, the group will walk back to the hotel.

    For anyone that does not want to walk the short distance to the Performing Arts Center, two minibuses will be provided before and after the event to shuttle people between the hotel and the Denver Performing Arts Center.


  • If you arrive in Denver early, please join us for our Sunday morning optional activity for visits to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Dinosaur Ridge.  We will meet in the hotel lobby at 8:15 am and board a 40-seat minibus to depart the hotel promptly at 8:30 am.  

    We will arrive at the Red Rocks Amphitheater at approximately 9:00 am for a 45-minute guided walking tour starting at 9:30 am.  On the tour, you will learn about the geological wonders that formed the "walls" of the Red Rocks, the early inhabitants of the territory, and the artists that have graced the world-famous stage cradled between Ship Rock and Creation Rock.  Following the tour, you will have an additional 30 minutes of free time before we board the minibus for a short ride to Dinosaur Ridge.  

    At Dinosaur Ridge, we will have a 90-minute Dinosaur Freeways & Cretaceous Seaways guided bus tour starting at 11:30 am.  On the tour, we will explore the world-famous fossil sites visiting at least 4 areas of Dinosaur Ridge.  The trained guide will focus on fossils/rock layers and how they formed, and how ancient climates were different from today and change over time.  We will depart Dinosaur Ridge immediately following the tour for our return drive to the hotel.  

    A box lunch will be provided on-board the minibus.

    Registration for the Sunday Morning Optional Activity will be limited to 40 people on a first come first serve basis.  Please register for this activity early if you want to be assured of a seat on the minibus.  The registration fee for this optional activity is $85 per person.
