APPA offers July 16 governance webinar on Strategic Planning for Utility Boards and City Councils
Originally published July 9, 2013
On Tuesday, July 16, APPA will hold a webinar, "Strategic Planning for Utility Boards and City Councils" from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Eastern time. This is the eighth in a series of nine webinars designed to educate public power board and city council members on the responsibilities and processes of electric utility governance.
Once legal and fiduciary duties are met, among the most important aspects of utility governance are establishing the mission/vision for the organization and setting the utility’s direction, usually through the strategic planning process. In this webinar, Jeff Tarbert, executive consultant for APPA, will examine one of several approaches to utility strategic planning and explain the board and/or council’s roles in that process.
The webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units, 1.5 professional development hours and 1.5 continuing professional education credits.
The final webinar in this series will address performance monitoring and accountability for boards and city councils.
This webinar series also counts toward completing APPA’s new Public Utility Governance Certificate Program.
