EIM Governing Body Nominating Committee - Request Publicly Owned Utility Sector Representative, Call 1/5/16




Implementation of the EIM governance structure includes the development of a nominating committee of stakeholders that will select a slate of candidates for the EIM Governing Body. The Publicly Owned Utility sector of the EIM Governing Body nominating committee is requesting additional participation from its sector stakeholders who may want to be considered for the role of sector representative on this committee. The ISO has scheduled a call for this sector on January 5, 2016.



Main Text

Members of the EIM Governing Body are to be selected by a nominating committee of stakeholders from key industry sectors through a process designed to ensure that each nominee is a consensus choice of these stakeholder representatives.  Potential nominees would be identified after a nationwide search with assistance from an executive recruiting firm.


The first set of sector calls occurred on December 14, 2015.  Clay Macarthur with Deseret Power expressed interest in being selected as the sector representative to the nominating committee.  In an effort to be inclusive and invite more participation, the ISO scheduled a call for January 5, 2016 so any qualifying stakeholder in the Publicly Owned Utility sector interested in participating as a representative to join the call.  Please contact Stacey Crowley at to be considered for the sector representative to the nominating committee.


The definition for this sector, as stated in the selection policy documents approved by the ISO Board at their December 18, 2015 meeting reads:

"The 'Publicly-Owned Utilities' sector, which will include every publicly-owned utility located within the balancing authority area of either the ISO or an EIM Entity. A 'publicly-owned utility' is any utility that is excluded from certain provisions of the Federal Power Act by virtue of Section 201(f) of the Act. Section 201(f) covers 'the United States, a State or any political subdivision of a state, or any agency, authority, or instrumentality of any one or more of the foregoing, or any corporation which is wholly owned, directly or indirectly, by any one or more of the foregoing.' By way of illustration, this includes, without limitation, municipally-owned utilities, power co-operatives and federal power marketing agencies. A publicly-owned utility that is either an EIM Entity or a Participating Transmission Owner shall participate in that sector rather than in the Publicly-Owned Utilities sector."
