2021 Nominations

As the terms expire for a number of Reliability Issues Steering Committee (RISC) members on January 31, 2022, volunteers are being sought from the Member Representatives Committee (MRC) and industry to serve on the RISC for two-year terms ending January 31, 2024.

As described in the RISC charter, nominees for RISC should meet the following general qualifications:

  • Executive-level position within the electric utility industry;
  • High-level understanding and strategic perspectives on reliability risks; and
  • Commitment to regular participation on the RISC in a collaborative and consensus-building manner.

The RISC holds a combination of in-person meetings and conference calls, at least once per quarter.  

​When determining a final slate of recommended members, the RISC Nominating Committee will evaluate nominees based on experience and qualifications, as well as diversity within the context of the entire membership of the RISC based on the following considerations:

  • Geographic and international diversity, such that Eastern, Western, and Texas Interconnections, along with Canada are represented on the RISC;
  • Sector, size, and asset (transmission, distribution, load, generation, etc.) diversity; and
  • Diversity in professional background and experience.

NOMINATION PERIOD: Closed on December 22, 2021
