New Hub group allows utility managers to exchange information, ideas, documents

From the February 11, 2013 issue of Public Power Daily

Originally published February 11, 2013

APPA’s online meeting place, the Hub, has a new discussion group for chief executives and other senior managers of APPA member utilities. The group, "Utility Managers," was launched on Feb. 1 and all primary contacts of APPA member utilities were auto-subscribed to the group. The discussion group exists to allow CEOs and other senior managers of public power utilities to ask questions and share information, ideas and documents with colleagues in the industry.

The Hub is an upgraded web platform for discussions among personnel of APPA member utilities. Launched in 2012, it replaced an old listserve technology that allowed only for exchange of emails, but imposed constraints on document-sharing and often led to erroneous posts by individuals who thought they were corresponding with one person but in fact were broadcasting a message to hundreds of people.  

In addition to the Utility Managers group, the Hub has more than 30 discussion groups related to several discrete topic areas.
