3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Energy Economics Banquet
The 3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Energy Economics (RMEE) Banquet will be held Thursday, October 27, 2016 from 6:00pm-8:30pm in the Centennial Room at the Denver Athletic Club (DAC) in Downtown Denver (located at the corner of Glenarm and 14th St.). Doors will open at 5:30pm with a networking reception/cocktail hour from 6:00pm-7:00pm, dinner at 7:00pm, and speaker beginning around 7:30pm. This event has passed.
The initiation of the CSM-USAEE was partially motivated by the desire to help bridge the gap between academia and industry in the local energy community. This annual event is a unique opportunity to meet, network, and exchange ideas with local industry in a comfortable environment, including a cocktail hour, dinner, and guest speaker.
