Western Energy Imbalance Market

Western EIM Governing Nominating Committee Starts its Work for 2020


The California ISO announces that the Western Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) Nominating Committee has started its process to nominate a slate for the Governing Body seat for which the term is scheduled to expire in 2020.


According to the Selection Policy for the EIM Governing Body, the Nominating Committee will convene no less than 100 days prior to the scheduled expiration of any Member’s term to begin the process of identifying potential candidates for the seat.


The Nominating Committee will immediately take the following steps to identify a candidate to bring to the Western EIM Governing Body for approval in a general session meeting:

  • Determine if the Governing Body member whose term is scheduled to expire has expressed a desire to be nominated for a new term, and will conclude whether it wants to re-nominate the departing member without interviewing other candidates.
  • If the Committee does not decide to proceed in this manner, then it should ask the Executive Search Firm to identify at least two qualified candidates to interview.


The Governing Body is a five member body that works closely with the California ISO Board of Governors and exercises delegated authority over rules of the Western EIM. Candidates for the Governing Body are selected by a Nominating Committee comprised of representatives of Western EIM stakeholders.


Members of the Nominating Committee are:
