On March 11, the APPA Academy will offer three, pre-Legislative Rally Seminars on:

•    How Congress Really Works;
•    Cyber Security: Legislation, Regulation, and Executive Orders, Oh My! and
•    Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act: What Is Happening to Implement the Act and How Will My Utility Be Affected?

Participants in "How Congress Really Works" will learn how Congress’s processes work—or, at times, don't work—with regard to legislation that affects public power. The speakers will provide insight into how APPA members can effectively engage in the legislative process and work with their members of Congress in a constructive way.

 "Cyber Security: Legislation, Regulation, and Executive Orders, Oh My!" will provide attendees with an in-depth review of cyber security issues from a legislative and regulatory standpoint, including actions taken outside of those frameworks (executive orders, etc.). The speakers will discuss how individual utilities should be engaging with their legislators and others to educate them on the steps that public power is taking in the area of cyber security.

The instructors of "Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act: What Is Happening to Implement the Act and How Will My Utility Be Affected?" will review the implementation of the act with a discussion on risk management for public power utilities and how to engage legislators and inform them of the impacts and potential changes that are needed to the act.
