September 11, 2018 Meeting Luncheon – 12pm

Holiday Inn Express Civic Center, 100 Civic Center Drive, Charleston, WV 25301

Presenter: Dr. Brian Anderson, Director of the West Virginia University Energy Institute

Learn what the Appalachian Storage and Trading Hub could mean for West Virginia.  It’s anticipated this project could bring up to 6,000 construction jobs and tens of thousands of permanent, high-paying, skilled jobs with it.  Potentially located in the West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania tri-state area, this could provide the raw materials for manufacturing activities for anything based on petrochemicals (pretty much everything you own).  This session will help you understand the possibilities available to your association, your property and West Virginia.
