The 2019 conference will be held at the Opal Sands Resort in Clearwater Beach, FL May 19-21.
The NDT Fund Conference (aka the NDT Fund Study Group) is the foremost annual venue for mutual education on the management and administration of nuclear decommissioning trust funds. The hosts of the conference are the owner/operators of nuclear generation facilities, primarily from the treasury and finance departments where the trusts are invested and administered. We also invite trust service institutions, investment managers, consultants, tax and regulatory attorneys, as well as experts in decommissioning cost estimation and physical decomissioning. Total NDT assets under management were estimated to be approximately $66 billion according to the 2016 NISA Investment Advisors biennial survey.
Invitations will be emailed in late January and will include instructions on registering for the conference and hotel as well as a request for proposal for presentation topics.
