A MONTH OF MANY MILESTONES

NOTE THE NEWS TECHNICAL COMMITTEES

By Jason Blake, President and CEO So much has happened in the past 30 days, and we are quite excited to share with you the completion of many key milestones in the efforts to integrate the SERC and FRCC Regions. OnApril 30th, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued an order formally approving the transfer of all registered entities in the FRCC Region to SERC by July 1, 2019. We could not be more pleased about this opportunity to expand SERC’s footprint, and to welcome the addition of so many respected, diverse, and expert organizations into our Region!

FOR YOUR CALENDAR INSIDE SERC

Another important milestone in our transition efforts occurred in lateApril, as well. For the first time, SERC held its spring Board of Directors meeting in the beautiful city of Tampa, Florida. We were thrilled that so many prospective members and registered entities joined us. During this meeting, the Board took significant actions that are effective upon the formal transfer of the FRCC registered entities to SERC: • First, the Board formally approved and welcomed 26 new members from Florida. • Second, the Board of Directors added and elected three senior executives from current FRCC registered entities to join the SERC Board Executive Committee. This expansion of the Board Executive Committee helps ensure Florida representation and demonstrates our commitment at all levels of SERC to be a singular, inclusive, and cohesive region for entities across both the current SERC and FRCC footprints. • Third, the Board of Directors also approved the submission of SERC’s draft 2020 Business Plan and Budget to NERC, and its posting for comment. SERC management and numerous Board committees have worked very hard to ensure that we perform our important work in the most effective and efficient manner, and we believe that this draft budget will prudently enable us to do so.
