For four decades, linemen have exchanged ideas, addressed issues and solved problems through the Transmission and Distribution Maintenance and Management Association (TDMMA).
Rather than reinventing the wheel, the crew leaders have shared best practices, experiences with tools and technology, and tips to boost productivity and protect their field workforce.
For the 41st annual conference, more than 120 linemen, managers and supervisors traveled to Sacramento, California. Over the course of four days, the crew leaders networked, listened to panel discussions and actively participated in open forums. They also participated in a technical tour of the SMUD East Campus Operation Center & SMUD Power Academy and the NBA Golden 1 Center.
