We invite you to attend the Minnesota Geothermal Heat Pump Association’s 2015 Annual Conference on March 25 and 26 at the Grand Casino Hinckley in Hinckley, Minnesota.

Grand Casino LogoRegistration opens at 10:30 a.m. and there will be time then to visit with our vendors.  The Conference officially begins at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25 with our Opening Keynote.  Steve Smith, the CEO of Enertech has been invited to speak.

After lunch, our vendors will have a few minutes to introduce themselves and talk about some of the products at their booths.  They might further entice you to stop by when they tell you about any special door prize drawings they are offering at their table!  Three breakout sessions follow – one on the new energy code, another on Geo Connections, and the third on loop construction.

After a break and some additional time with our vendors, we’ll offer another three breakouts, this time covering electrical concerns and up-front financing.  A third program is still under development.

Our Annual Meeting follows and we encourage those interested to let us know about their interest in Board service.  After dinner, we will have our exhibits open and more time to visit with our vendors.

Breakfast is on your own on Thursday and the Conference resumes with three breakout sessions including sessions on residential designs and buffer tanks.  A third program will be announced soon.  Following a break, the final breakout sessions will be held, including programs on propylene glycol, commercial designs, and fusion training.

There will be a last few minutes to visit with our vendors and then we wrap up with lunch and a keynote address from Jack Di Enna of Geothermal National & International Initiative.  Following Jack, we’ll give away some door prizes and you can return to your work with new ideas and new relationships!

The Grand Casino is offering us a special rate for our Conference and rooms will be available for Tuesday and Wednesday night for just $59.20 per night (plus 9.875 percent taxes).  Call the hotel at (800) 472-6321 and mention “Minnesota Geothermal Heat Pump Association (MNGHPA) to get our preferred rate!  Remember, the Hotel and Conference Center are connected, but separate from the gaming areas, so if gambling isn’t your thing, you can easily avoid those areas.

Don’t miss this Conference!
