The action doesn't end when the sessions conclude for the day. Join us for the Green Power Party on Monday, October 19th, hosted by WGL Energy, and cruise down the Potomac with friends and colleagues!

Take in the monumental sights of Washington, D.C. from aboard the glass-enclosed Odyssey. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and drinks as you cruise beneath the Memorial Bridge, past the Kennedy Center, and up to Georgetown. 

Passenger check-in and boarding begins at 7:00 PM on Monday, October 19th, and the boat will remain docked for the first hour of the party. The boat will leave the marina promptly at 8:00 PM, when you'll have your last chance to board.
