Chairman Letter


Ken Grant

Welcome to GLEMS. My name is Ken Grant and I have the honor of being your steering committee chair for the 2022 and 2023 GLEMS schools. First, I would like to start with a safety statement.  While we navigate through these troubling times, I encourage you all to stay vigilant with your safety protocols and procedures. It is essential that we continue this in order to keep our loved ones, friends, coworkers, and fellow community members safe.

Secondly, I would like to thank our steering committee. We are a volunteer group of utility industry professionals with various backgrounds all with the common goal of providing a high-quality educational experience for the students at GLEMS. This work is done on a year-round bases carving into our personal time to ensure the student experience at GLEMS is top notch, and for that I wish to thank them for their service.

Finally, I would like to address our students and vendors of past and future. To those that have attended, thank you for attending and helping keep the networking opportunity that GLEMS provides a positive and engaging one turning it into a crucial benefit of attending.  To our future students, please come join us as we engage in classroom presentations, real world applicable group projects, and hands on labs.
