The annual Meter School consists of several components. The first is a Basic Metering Pre-Conference, which typically starts a day before the Meter School. The Basic Metering Pre-Conference runs a day and a half. The Meter School picks up where the pre-conference ends, typically beginning in the afternoon and running for two more days. The Meter School itself is divided into Basic/Intermediate and Advanced tracks. The school includes a Meter School Product Show, held in the evening the first day of the school.
