St. Petersburg, FL, April 17 - 20, at the Don CeSar Hotel
|An Invitation||Hope you all had a great holiday
season. It's time to start thinking about our spring meeting which will be
at the Don Cesar in St. Petersburg from April 17 - April 20.
Please plan on staying at the Don Cesar or the TradeWinds, so that we meet our room commitments and don't have to pay a penalty. At this meeting we have a contract with both the Don Cesar and the TradeWinds for overflow. At the fall meeting, we met our room commitment to the Don, but fell way short of meeting the commitment with the TradeWinds. Due to not meeting our room night commitment at the TradeWinds, they are trying to force us to pay a large penalty, which we are trying to negotiate with them to eliminate or minimize. We still need most of our members staying at the Don, so we don't incur penalties with not meeting our room nights, but we need at least 50 people to stay at the TradeWinds. Reservations for the TradeWinds can be made by calling 800-360-4016. We haven't been providing transportation between the TradeWinds and the Don because so few people have been staying at the TradeWinds. If we get enough people to stay there, so we don't have to pay a penalty, we will set up a shuttle bus between the two hotels.
Please register early and save some money and time at the conference.
Make your plans now and let's enjoy the Florida weather and each other's company as we learn and improve our industry.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in April.
Thanks, Bill Taylor -

A Review of Secondary Underground Cable Basics
The topic of 600 volt underground
secondary cable is seldom discussed at ICC meetings where medium and
high voltage underground cables receive most attention. However,
underground secondary cables form an important part of a utility system
considering larger utilities install more than 1 million ft. of
underground secondary cable per year and spend several million dollars
annually on secondary underground cable repair costs. This Educational
Program will focus on the topic of underground residential and
commercial services and underground streetlight cables. Presentations
from the cable manufacturers will cover the manufacture, design,
materials and industry specifications covering secondary cables. Learn
about the latest secondary cable design technologies and their potential
benefits. Presentations from the utilities will focus on their
experience with underground secondary cables and splices. The
Educational Program will also feature a presentation on the results of a
utility survey on secondary cables conducted specifically for the
benefit of utilities attending this session. Learn more about the
specifics of our program in the coming weeks.
|New Member Orientation||
Chair, Ken Bow, will host a Guest/New Member Orientation session on Sunday
afternoon from 4:00 to 4:45 pm at the Don Cesar. Its a great way to learn
about the ICC, its history and its future. You'll meet some of the officers,
learn about plans for the week and go away with a clearer vision of how you
can be a part of the ICC and how the ICC can help you get your job done.
|Mini-Expo||The Spring meeting will feature
a Mini-Expo for vendors to make table top displays of equipment and services
related to the scope of the ICC.
You can sign up for a table top display
using the meeting Registration form.

suite in conjunction with the Spring 2005 meeting, be sure to see the Guideline page.
|Spouse Activities||Monday, April 18, 2005: The
ladies and guest program will consist of a luncheon and a flower
demonstration provided by the florist at the "Don". There will be the
opportunity to make a flower arrangement that can be taken home by the
participant. The luncheon will be a deli buffet to allow time for the demo.
The starting time will be around 12:00pm. The cost will be $35.00.
Tuesday, April 19, 2005: An informal shopping tour will be arranged depending on the level of interest. The details will be forthcoming depending on the response to a survey taken at the meeting. A van will be provided and the cost of $20.00 will be adjusted downward depending on the number of people who respond positively.
Please let Judy Bow know by e-mail what your plans are to attend one or both activities. This will help our planning. E-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
