SEARUC and MARC Presidents on the Regional Meetings


Floyd McKissick, Sarah Freeman

Fortnightly Magazine - July 2024

NARUC holds three big meetings a year, which are quite popular and well attended. It also has five regional associations, which hold annual meetings, usually in May and June.

EEI Annual Meeting 2024 - June 18-20

Those five are: Mid-America Regulatory Conference (MARC), Mid-Atlantic Conference of Regulatory Utilities Commissions (MACRUC), New England Conference of Public Utilities Commissioners (NECPUC), Southeastern Association of Regulatory utility Commissioners (SEARUC), and Western Conference of Public Service Commissioners (Western).

Each regional association elects its own officers, maintains independent bylaws, hosts annual meetings/education conferences, and convenes during NARUC meetings. Public Utilities Fortnightly’s Paul Kjellander, former Idaho Commission Chair, ran around the country recently to attend three of these meetings and talked with outgoing SEARUC President Floyd McKissick on his accomplishments and incoming MARC President Sarah Freeman on what to expect in 2025.
