Come network with fellow Iowans and participate in the presentation via webinar.

1:00 – 2:00 pm – Smart speakers can be a tool for customer engagement, energy efficiency, and the hub of the smart home. Xcel Energy is pioneering these opportunities to deepen customer engagement through smart speakers.

Lunch is $10.  Please pay via the Eventbrite RSVP process, we won’t be able to take payment at the door. For continuing education purposes, attendees can count the event for 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH).
