APPA Leg Rally
Sorry for lack of posts. It was a busy week. The association I work for, American Public Power Association, held its Legislative Rally Conference this past week. This events brings members into Washington, DC to vote on various resolutions and prepare for lobbying visits with members of Congress on the Hill. This year we had Tucker Carlson as the keynote speaker at our lunch and presented Senator Byron Dorgan from North Dakota with a public service award. This was followed by a skit based on the Wizard of Oz-which made for a good laugh. There is always a lot of buildup for the conference and while there isn't excessive preparation, you have to be on your toes and I am glad it is completed. I will be going to the National Conference in Orlando this year which I am looking forward to.
