SEMA Officers Message

UPDATE - October 18, 2018:  

Out of concern for all of our utility brothers and sisters who are working so diligently in the wake of Hurricane Michael, SEMA has decided to postpone this year's conference.  We look forward to seeing everyone next year.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.  Everyone stay safe!


Greetings Fellow SEMA Members and Utility Professionals:

I would like to personally invite everyone to attend the 2018 93rd Annual SEMA Short Course and Conference.  SEMA was established in 1925, and this year we celebrate 93 years of educating utility professionals about electric metering and our interaction with the rest of the power industry.  Now more than ever, training is vital for all utility personnel to keep up with our ever-changing technical industry. 

This year’s learning event is being held November 5th  thru 7th, at University of Florida TREEO Center in Gainesville.

The electric meter has evolved into a very important asset for utilities which requires specific training for everyone.  No longer can we deliver training only for metering personnel, but we must reach out to all utility personnel.  This year’s learning event will have four  tracks that are designed to give everyone an opportunity to learn about the electric meter and its uses.  

 SEMA provides the participant with a comfortable learning environment, technical experts, hands-on demonstrations and social activities.  Our officers took the feedback from last year’s conference, and are providing even more hands-on training.  SEMA is all about providing the most up-to-date information and sharing experiences to see the participant succeed in their profession.  We have a great team of metering professionals that are designing the curriculum and courses to meet the needs of the electric utilities.

The success of SEMA is attributed to our association with The University of Florida, meter and equipment manufacturers, vendors, and utility professionals like you.  Not only is this an outstanding learning event; but it also provides the opportunity to socially interact with meter engineers, utility peers, and vendors that deliver the products used in metering. 

We have all volunteered our time to be part of this organization because we care about our profession and sharing our experiences with you.  We look forward to seeing you in Gainesville in November.

If you have any questions or comments about this event, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other officer.  


We are the Keepers of our Craft,

Marcus Jenkins,

President 2018, Southeastern Electricity Metering Association
