"I'm really excited to see and commune with all my Hydro Friends again. Hydropower has always felt unique among utility-scale power generation industries in the depth of personal relationships that are developed over the years and decades. The heavy restrictions on one-on-one meetings this past year were difficult to take, but we did so for the greater good, not knowing how the pandemic would play out. Although we have found new ways of conducting business, nothing is better than one-on-one interactions, so I salute NHA for their brave leadership and unwavering commitment to organizing this large, in-person event - with suitable precautions - despite the constantly changing directives from government officials. Power on, NHA!"
