Portland, Oregon will be hosting the longstanding low-income advocate peer exchange. The meeting this year will be led by a mix of experienced and grizzled verterans of utility policy and new up-and-coming fresh faces. It should be a great place to share how different states are handling the transition to alternative generations, while hopefully implementing improved low-income programs.
There is a block of rooms at the Doubletree at the Llyod Center. Please say you are with the low-income peer exchange to get the rate. This hotel is off the Max, Portland's public transit system that can be ridden from the airport. The Max should also be able to take you close to the meeting location. If you are brave and want to stay somewhere that is very "Portland", the Crystal Ballroom Hotel will give you an authentic experience.
