WUI 2017 Annual Meeting Attracts Record-Breaking Crowd

WUI Executive Director, James Buchen, addresses the crowd at the 2017 WUI Annual Meeting of Members

A record number of WUI members joined us at the EAA in Oshkosh on September 14 for the
Annual Meeting! It would be safe to say, not only do utility stockholders share a respect for
the energy industry and reliable dividend returns, but they also share a love of history and
transportation!

This presents a good problem in looking to the 2018 Annual Meeting, how do we improve upon
the 2016 National Railroad Museum and the 2017 Experimental Aircraft Association Museum?

The Wisconsin Utility Investors Board of Directors wish to thank all who attended, who braved
the morning fog. We are also grateful to our excellent speakers, Andy Smith of Edward Jones
who addressed the group about “Making Sense of Investing” and Garrett J. Huffman (Research
Assistant to Mike Kuglitsch, Committee Chair on Energy and Utilities) who presented a
legislative review and a new legislative proposal which would reduce state tax on dividends.

What would an Annual meeting be without an update from our Utilities? John Sumi of MGE
Energy, Joel Haubrick of WEC Energy, and Chris LaRowe of WPS discussed the latest Issues
Impacting Wisconsin Utilities.

Thank You to the staff at the EAA and to the docent, Chris Henry, who presented a history of the
EAA and led members on a guided tour of the museum.

CALLING ALL WUI MEMBERS! YOU ARE INVITED TO THE WUI 2017 ANNUAL MEETING OF MEMBERS AT THE EAA IN OSHKOSH!

the legislative portion of the meeting.  Bert Garvin,
Wisconsin Energy Corporation’s Executive Vice President,

a brief update on their companies and answered questions
from members.
