APPA offers webinar next week on strategic issues facing governing bodies
Originally published April 16, 2013
On Tuesday, April 23, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, APPA will hold a webinar on "Strategic Issues Facing Public Power Governing Bodies." This is the fifth 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.
Some say the electric utility industry is facing the most significant period of change since its inception more than 100 years ago. Organized markets, smart grid, environmental regulations, power supply options, customer expectations and a changing workforce are just a few of the issues that utility governing bodies must deal with. In this webinar, Jeff Tarbert, executive consultant to APPA, will focus on the major policy issues likely to be taken up by public power utility boards in the next 10 years.
Upcoming webinars will address utility financial operations, rate making, strategic planning and performance monitoring and accountability for boards and city councils.
Each webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units, 1.5 professional development hours and 1.5 continuing professional education credits. To register, visit www.APPAAcademy.org under "Webinar Series."
This webinar series also counts toward completing APPA’s new Public Utility Governance Certificate Program. To learn more about the program and other APPA governance training offerings, visit www.APPAAcademy.org under Courses and Workshops or contact Heidi Lambert at 202/467-2921 or by email at HLambert@PublicPower.org.
