To create a governance structure for Western EIM, a transitional committee was formed in 2015, inclusive of stakeholders throughout the west. These stakeholders came together to design a governance framework which was formalized in a charter. The charter established the EIM Governing Body, the Body of State Regulators, and the Regional Issues Forum.
