To join the EEI Associate Program, your organization must have an interest in advancing the development of the electric power industry, but cannot be engaged in generation, transmission, distribution, sale, or brokerage of electricity, or if so engaged, not regulated as an electric utility. Annual dues are based upon your firm's revenues, and begin at $4,000.
Associate members receive immediate benefits in the form of "Insight, Access, and Visibility."


  • EEI hosts several major conferences that attract large audiences, including: EEI's annual meeting in June which attracts CEOs and other senior executives; the EEI Financial Conference in November which draws CEOs, CFOs, and the financial community; and semi-annual events such as the Transmission, Distribution, Metering and Mutual Assistance Conference.
  • Members also can attend EEI's specialized meetings, drawing crowds ranging from dozens to hundreds of experts in marketing, planning, HR, IT, environmental issues, and much more. As an Associate Member, you also have ready access to EEI's staff of industry specialists who track and analyze current industry issues.
  • Interact with key industry executives at dozens of EEI Meetings and Conferences aimed at addressing the industry's most timely issues.
