GRC Annual Meeting 2019: Canada Representation

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) Annual Meeting is fast approaching and we are looking forward to having a strong Canada representation. The conference will be held in Palm Springs, CA from Sept. 15-18, 2019.

Many of our board members as well as our corporate members will be in attendance, and some are presenting talks and/or have posters. Geothermal Canada president Cathie Hickson will give the Country Update in the International Session. If you are a Geothermal Canada member and would like a slide in the presentation, please email us.

There is also an International Luncheon preceding the session in Primrose A at 12:00pm and it would be great to have a “Canada Table”. As per usual, Geothermal Canada will have some chocolate dinosaurs for special gifts and rumour has it that Terrapin will also have some amazing T-shirts to give away to a few special people.

We have compiled a schedule of sessions from our members. If you would like your session included, please let us know.
