APPA Membership In Energy Workforce Group Offers Benefits For Members

Members of the American Public Power Association (APPA) will have access to a wide range of workforce-related resources as a result of APPA joining the Center for Energy Workforce Development (CEWD).

Washington, D.C.-based CEWD is a non-profit consortium of more than 120 energy companies, associations, unions, educational institutions, and government entities working in partnership to ensure a skilled, diverse workforce pipeline for the energy industry.

“APPA is excited to be able to deliver a number of additional workforce resources to our members as a result of our joining CEWD,” said Ursula Schryver, APPA’s Vice President for Strategic Member Engagement & Education.

She noted that APPA will be distributing information to members about opportunities available through CEWD to help them with workforce issues.

Schryver pointed out that APPA already offers workforce-related resources for members. Under a strategic initiative for workforce development, APPA helps member utilities take on challenges in four areas -- recruitment and retention, succession planning and staff development, diversity, equity and inclusion, and establishing sound human resource policies.
