NOTE THE NEWS TECHNICAL COMMITTEES

FOR YOUR CALENDAR INSIDE SERC

By Jason Blake, President and CEO The time has finally arrived where we can officially extend a warm welcome to all registered entities across the entire state of Florida! We are equally happy to report that so many of these Florida companies have already signed up as SERC Members or are in the process of doing so. We are excited about the wealth of knowledge they will bring to our Technical Committees, and we look forward to working with them on our mission to reduce risk to the Bulk Power System. Broadening our knowledge base provides more opportunities to exchange best practices and lessons learned. We look forward to seeing and greeting so many respected and talented individuals at our upcoming Summer Regional Meetings, fall seminars, and the Fall Technical Committee Meetings where we will all have an opportunity to get to know each other.

In addition to the new Florida companies we will be working with, we are excited to welcome the group of talented FRCC staff who have joined the SERC team. July 1, 2019 marks the beginning of their careers at SERC, and we could not be happier about the myriad skills they bring to the team. Former FRCC staff have been integrated across SERC at all levels, which further speaks to the tremendous and positive impact they will immediately have on our organization and the value they will be able to bring to all SERC stakeholders. Much has been accomplished this year, yet the work is not quite complete. There are a number of integration-related tasks that will continue well into the second half of the year. We have ensured key processes have been integrated, and key data has been transferred between the Regions. However, like any significant integration, the work does not stop on the official “transition” date. To make sure that we continue our hard work to successfully integrate the Florida companies, former FRCC staff, and understand and integrate best practices, John Odom, who you will be introduced to in this news- letter, will provide strong leadership to ensure sustained and permanent success. If you have an interest, you may track continued progress on our integration efforts on the FRCC Integration webpage. MORE
