What others have said about “The Basics”

“Very informative and relevant.”

“The speakers were knowledgeable and execution was of the highest quality.”

“Good general overview of the rate case process.”

“The speakers did great at explaining materials in an easy understandable way.”

“I feel that if I were to start a working on a rate case tomorrow, I have a better idea of where to begin and what questions to ask than I would have, had I not attended the conference.
