Several BSE shareholders attended the 2013 Financial Research Institute Public Utility Symposium – Visualizing the Future: Public Utilities in 2020, on September 18, 2013, in Columbia, Missouri.  Attending from BSE were Paul Boudreau, Russ Mitten, Diana Carter, Jim Swearengen, Brian McCartney, and myself.

The Symposium was well-attended by Commissioners, regulators, utility employees, attorneys and others from multiple states.  Panel discussions involving several state commissions, as well as a CEO Panel Discussion were well-prepared and received.

Dr. Ferris and his Staff at the University of Missouri, as always, put together a quality program.  We will look forward to participating again next year.
