Upcoming Events
Winter 2018 SNUG Conference

Board of Directors Meeting and Registration Reception February 11, 2018
Conference February 12, 13 & 14, 2018


This conference is geared to meet the needs of snubber program owners.  However, implementation personnel responsible for any program aspect will benefit from the conference.  Persons involved in snubber program administration, licensing, code compliance, and "hands-on" field work with snubbers should plan to attend. Anyone who works with snubbers in any capacity is welcome to attend the conference, and will benefit from the information that is readily exchanged between others in your own capacity at other plants.  There is no cost for member utility representatives to attend the conference. Nonmember utilities are allowed to attend up to two conferences as guests without joining SNUG.

The preliminary agenda for the conference may be viewed at the link below.  The agenda includes a number of items that should be of special interest to those who are relatively new to snubber responsibilities, as well as for those who are more experienced.  Some segments of the conference will be dedicated to an overview of issues and concerns that have been previously addressed, but that newer members may not be familiar with.  Opportunities will be provided for attendees to select topics that they wish to see revisited in more detail, and those topics will be presented later in the conference agenda.  For this reason the agenda is subject to change depending upon the needs and desires of those in attendance.

Baton Rouge

Explore Louisiana's Capital City

Louisiana’s state capital, Baton Rouge is a bustling Mississippi River city that hums with economic activity. Its major industries range from petrochemicals to medicine to motion pictures and it is home to the ninth largest port in the U.S.  Much of Baton Rouge’s identity is anchored in its history, culture and the sense of revelry that seems to infuse day-to-day life, from Mardi Gras parades to fan-fueled celebrations of LSU’s beloved Fighting Tigers.

Some of our favorite attractions in and around Baton Rouge include:

Shaw Center for the Arts

An award-winning center housing the Brunner Gallery, LSU Museum of Art, the 350-seat Manship Theater, as well as traveling exhibits and restaurants.

Louisiana Art and Science Museum

Home to the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, space exhibits and traveling art shows.

Swine Palace

The anchor of the city’s performance arts scene, this non-profit theater company at LSU comprises students of the university’s MFA acting program and professional actors.
