Leg Rally Wrap Up
Apologies for the lack of posts but it has been a busy week. Before we get to the news of the week, I wanted to give a wrap up of APPA's Leg Rally. Tuesday included a luncheon and a speech by political commentator Mark Shields which was both witty and insightful. It set the bar for a the future. Immediately after that we had our Membership Committee meeting which I had to sit in on. It was all business but still very interesting. The final day was a morning breakfast, followed by a speech by Congressman James Cliburn of South Carolina and a skit, done by APPA staff that highlighted public power issues that they would be lobbying on during their visits to Capitol Hill. The point of the conference is to update members on the issues and in turn give them the opportunity to visit their elected officials on Capitol Hill. Overall this week is certainly a break in the action and one I look forward to every year.
