Is there a virtual option for the 2022 IEEE PES General Meeting? 

There is not a virtual option for the 2022 IEEE PES General Meeting.  The PES GM Steering Committee feels this event should be experienced in person since networking is key benefit of this event.   As we continue to monitor and be nimble in the new events landscape, we are considering viable hybrid options for future IEEE PES General Meetings.  All presentations from the event will be made available in the PES Resource Center at no charge to PES members.
