Well good morning ladies and gentlemen, it’s shortly after 10:00 A.M. Central Daylight Time. The time set for convening Wisconsin Energy’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. I’m Gale Klappa, Chairman, President and Chief Executive of Wisconsin Energy and I will service Chairman for today’s meeting.
We’re delighted to be here again at Concordia University and I’d like to thank the President of Concordia, the Reverend Dr. Patrick Ferry and his entire staff for their always gracious hospitality and for allowing us to use their beautiful campus today.
Now before we begin our session this morning, I’d like to take just a moment to tell you an amazing story about the actions of two of our employees. Over the years, some of you may have called our contact center to ask a question or perhaps to report an outage. The center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The employees, who work there, are highly trained and focused on delivering the best customer care anywhere. Two of our contact center employees are with us today and I’d like to ask them to join me now at the podium.
