The 48th Annual Meeting of the Members has concluded and it was a great meeting.  Speaker Presentations may be downloaded by clicking "here".  A completed survey sent to Members of TMEPA, Sponsors and exhibitors shows just how successful it was.  The 2015 Annual Meeting Committee will be meeting soon to start on next year's meeting.  Pass on your suggestions to the East District Managers.   
 

TMEPA is a membership association of all 60 Municipal Electric Power Providers of Tennessee serving over 2.1 million homes and businesses.  This figure includes over 70% of the electric consumers in the State of Tennessee.  Our Primary objective is to represent the members in the state legislative arena although we do participate in national issues in conjunction with APPA and TVPPA.  As a service oriented organization, we also provide a number of other services to the members and exist for their benefit.  Membership in TMEPA brings a host of benefits to its members and the financial savings have certainly exceeded the nominal annual fee each system pays.  The following are informational documents that may be of interest.  Just “click” on the title for more information.

Our 2014 Membership Directory is "live and online".  It's behind the Members Only section so you'll need your log in and password.  If you don't have it, let us know and we can send it to you.  The Directory can also be purchased by contacting the TMEPA office. You'll find individual Member System information, 2014 Associate Members, Standing Committees, advertiser information and even more.  By the way, that's the front door of our new office on the cover. Should you be interested in future advertising opportunities in the TMEPA Directory, click HERE for an online version of the media kit from Naylor.

You'll notice in the left margin a category of Membership titled - Associate Members.  We encourage you to click on this link to view the organizations who financially support TMEPA and its activities.  The highest level of support is Partner (Level 4).  We are grateful to each of them and encourage you to give them the opportunity to serve your system needs.

We urge you to be in contact with your Senators and Representatives over the fall and winter months and to build on the great relationships we already enjoy. We'll be back at the Hermitage in 2015 for our annual Rally and Reception.  Details will be sent later this fall. 

TMEPA has a new home!! 
That's right, after 30 years at 229 Ward Circle, C-13, we have moved to a new facility.  The address of the new office is 212 Overlook Circle, Suite 205, Brentwood, TN 37027 and is about 1.6 miles east of our old location. Click HERE for MapQuest Directions.  The office looks great and we're proud of our new home.   The "Member Wall" is up and everyone stops to see it when visiting.  We're still missing a few systems but expect them any day now.  Click on the link to the left to view the pictures "on the Wall".  Click here for a YouTube video of the new office. 

If you have a few minutes check out a remarkable magazine in the left margin, Tennessee Connections, the premier magazine of the municipal electric systems of Tennessee.  Just "click" on the picture in the left margin. It will take you to the website dedicated to this outstanding publication.  Check back for new issues each quarter and go to Contact Us to let us know what you think.

We continue to ask for your support, assistance and your prayers in order to assure success. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any input. TMEPA exists for the benefit of its members and our success is their success.
