Who Should Participate

While the content is geared towards public utility finance and accounting personnel, executive managers, rate analysts, and policymakers will also benefit from the information. 

These webinars are conducted at a practical level, using real-world examples and case studies from public power utilities across the nation (making them appropriate for non-finance personnel as well).
