Two public power leaders — Lonnie Carter, president and CEO of Santee Cooper, and J. Gary Stauffer, chair of APPA’s board of directors and executive director/CEO of the NMPP Energy in Nebraska — will be featured speakers at APPA's Public Power Leadership Workshop, Oct. 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio, Texas. 

Carter will discuss how a CEO leads during a time of change and explore what it takes to be an effective utility senior manager, including setting organizational direction, defining appropriate roles and responsibilities, directing and motivating staff and working with the utility’s governing body. Stauffer will lead a session on the changing business environment and the utility industry's outlook for the future. 

Carter and Stauffer will jointly present a session on positioning your utility to be competitive.

Other sessions will cover strategic financial issues for senior executives; setting policy direction and working effectively with your governing body; and how to develop your most effective leadership style. 

This program is designed for general managers and CEOs (particularly those new to their jobs) as well as senior managers and those on track for executive leadership positions. 

In conjunction with the Public Power Leadership Workshop, APPA is also holding the Fall Education Institute the week of Oct. 7 in San Antonio. The institute features 15 in-depth courses on accounting, cost of service, conducting a utility financial check-up, key accounts management and a track of four new safety courses. These events are co-sponsored by the Texas Public Power Association.
