APPA National Conference offers in-depth education opportunities for utility boards, managers
Originally published March 4, 2014
Utility governing boards, city council members and utility managers will have an opportunity to attend several in-depth preconference seminars at the 2014 APPA National Conference.
Preconference seminars—to be held on Saturday, June 14, and Sunday, June 15—offer longer class times and smaller class sizes than traditional conference sessions, with more interactive formats and personalized attention with the instructors.
The seminars are specifically tailored for high-level attendees, including elected and appointed governing boards, mayors and city councils and utility managers. Courses range from overviews, designed with those new to the public power industry in mind, to more in-depth examinations of issues affecting the utility industry.
Pre-conference seminar topics will include:
· Electric Utility Industry Overview
· Overview of Utility Financial Operations for Boards
· Strategic Planning for Long-Term Utility Effectiveness
· Technology Roadmap for Public Power Utilities
· Understanding a Utility’s Cost Structure and its Effect on Customers’ Rates
· Duties, Responsibilities and Legal Obligations of Public Power Governing Boards
· Leadership’s Role in Establishing Safety Culture Change
· Cybersecurity Training for Public Power Leaders
· The Board’s Role in Monitoring Utility Performance
· Acquisition of New Power Supply for Public Power Managers and Policymakers
The 2014 National Conference will be held June 13-18 in Denver, Colo., at the Sheraton Denver Downtown. Registration information and the full conference agenda, including detailed information on preconference seminars, are available at www.publicpower.org/NationalConference.
