We're Back Y'all!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
On behalf of this year’s Local Conference Committee, I invite you to attend the PCIC Technical Conference September 13-16, 2021 in San Antonio, Texas… preferablyin person, but alternatively on-line.
Recovering from the cancellation of the Atlanta 2020 Conference has been difficult, and arrangements are coming together for your participationthis year, including provisions if you are unable to physically attend for any reason. Along with the full slate of papers that had been planned for last year, there will also be several excellent tutorials that will be available to Conference attendees.
The networking that takes place at PCIC Conferences has been so beneficial for so many for so long, and we remain confident in our plans for an in-person 2021 PCIC Conference. So, even with the on-line attendance option, we are in high gear to ensure appropriate levels of safety and social responsibility and have as many of us together as we can, in-person or elsewhere.
If you can be in San Antonio with us, you will be in for a treat. The Marriott RiverCenter hotel is right in the middle of the diverse and historical city of San Antonio, is right on the world-famous San Antonio River Walk, and just a short walk to the cradle of Texas Independence: The Alamo. There is plenty of room to roam with space for Social Distancing and the Marriott’s commitment to health and safety can be reviewed here: Commitment to Clean.
Convenient and affordable travel packages to San Antonio are available from almost anywhere, and it is an easydrive from the Gulf States of the USA. Learn more about this wonderful city here: www.visitsanantonio.com. We will take full advantage of San Antonio’s history and attractions for Guest/Spouse programs, with daily tours and excursions arranged with reduced “Covid Capacities” and allow free time for shopping, personal sightseeing, or relaxing.
Many volunteers work to ensure each conference has an abundance of opportunities for sharing and learning and advance relationships which are so important to conducting business throughout global electrical communities. Along with ideas for future technical papers, tutorials, and other collaborations, PCIC Conferences often foster lifelong friendships.
We are confident that the 2021 Conference will be a successful event, especially with your participation. Many PCIC friends are getting their vaccines, and you are all asked to be safe, stay healthy and plan to join us, please!
We look forward to seeing you in/from San Antonio!
