Presentation Policies

  • Priority in presentation selection is given to utilities, ISOs, RTOs, TSOs, DSOs, retailers, universities and non-profit industry organizations.
  • Suppliers may present a utility approved presentation if they are co-authors. Preference, however, will be given to presentations with a utility presenter.
  • All presentations must be non-commercial (no overt marketing material in the presentation) with a focus on the CIM lifecycle which is deemed to be informative and helpful to other companies considering using the CIM.
  • Non-commercial thought leadership presentations from all CIMug members are also welcome.
  • Presentations that demonstrate actual experiences with lessons learned will be preferred over high-level strategies for planned projects.
  • CIM Users Group membership is not a requirement for presentations.


Sponsorship Opportunities

We encourage our members to participate via a sponsorship or vendor demonstration table.  We have several sponsorship levels to choose from including Platinum, Gold, Silver, Lanyard and 2 reception sponsors.  For additional information visit please contact Margaret Goodrich at
