On Monday, March 31, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, APPA will hold a webinar on "Federal Legislative and Regulatory Issues for Boards."  This is the third in a series of nine webinars designed to educate elected and appointed public power board and city council members on the responsibilities and processes of electric utility governance. 
There are a number of federal legislative and regulatory issues that public power board members and policymakers should be aware of.  These include tax-exempt financing, environmental rules, Dodd-Frank Act rules and North American Electric Reliability Corp. and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission regulations, among others. This webinar will provide an overview of the issues, explain why they are important to public power and provide talking points to help elected and appointed officials explain how these issues will affect the community. The webinar will be led by Joy Ditto, APPA's vice president of government relations, and Delia Patterson, the association's assistant general counsel.                   

Upcoming webinars will address industry issues and challenges facing public power governing bodies, utility financial operations, rate making, strategic planning and performance monitoring and accountability for boards and city councils, as well as how to achieve excellence in public power governance. 

Each webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units, 1.5 professional development hours and 1.5 continuing professional education credits. Webinars can be taken individually or as a series for a discounted rate. They can also be applied to APPA’s Public Power Governance Certificate Program
