WDEA Annual Meeting

November 1 - 2, 2017

The Western Dakota Energy Association will hold its annual meeting Nov. 1-2 at the Ramada Grand Dakota Lodge in Dickinson.

Attendees at this year's annual meeting will get a heavy dose of energy technology, and the role it will play in the state's future economy.

Speakers and panelists will describe ways technology is changing the energy industry, from new fracking techniques and the potential for secondary oil recovery, to advances in coal generation and new uses for coal byproducts. Attendees will also hear an interim legislative update from Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, and a panel discussion of K-12 education funding.

The event opens with an evening social and trade show featuring remarks from Lt. Governor Brent Sanford and an update on the Theodore Roosevelt Expressway Association from Cal Klewin. The social will include entertainment provided by the Jazz Ensemble from Dickinson State University.

The main program Nov. 2 will feature co-keynote addresses by MHA Nation Chairman Mark Fox and Dickinson State University President Thomas Mitzel. The event wraps up with remarks from Department of Mineral Resources director Lynn Helms, including his county-by-county production report and thoughts about the industry's future.
