I just went to the PES press conference. Pat Ryan (PES Executive Director) asked me why I haven't talked about the name change for PES. I told him I was waiting for the offical release (I thought that was what we were meeting for today). Turns out this is old news - the T&D Committee Chair missed the announcement. Our President, Wanda Reder told everyone on Monday that we are now the Power and Energy Society. Where was Gene? Well, I was off lining up some folks to talk to my students for the tour of the exhibit floor. I missed the opening, but I got the students a couple of good demos. The students by the way were very excited about the student job fair started here. They got to visit with over 50 employers today and talk about careers in our industry.
