Currie to speak at Public Power Leadership Workshop in October
Originally published July 30, 2013
Phyllis Currie, general manager of Pasadena Water and Power in California, will be a featured speaker at the association’s ninth annual Public Power Leadership Workshop, Oct. 9-11 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in San Antonio, Texas. The workshop brings together industry leaders and practitioners to address the changes and challenges facing public power today; and the skills, knowledge and techniques leaders need to guide their organizations and governing boards.
Currie will discuss the financial and operational information and other data that senior executives need to determine how their organizations are performing. The session, which will take place from 8:30 a.m. until noon on Thursday, Oct. 10, will also address the application of enterprise risk management tools, processes for budgeting and long-term financial planning, determining revenue requirements and rates, and establishing measures and metrics to evaluate a utility's financial condition.
Other sessions will cover: leadership in a time of change, understanding the changing business environment: our industry’s outlook for the future; positioning your utility to be competitive; the shared roles of the utility board and the chief executive; 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, financial planning, key accounts management and a new track of safety training classes.
