OPPORTUNITY FOR TRCC MEMBERS TO MEET LEGISLATORS
Following lunch, members and representatives alike directed their attention to two featured speakers from the PUCO and ODOT who were brought in to elaborate on key issues and provide the opportunity for a Q & A session on specific updates.
- Reliability and resource adequacy must be met by a diverse set of resources
- Customers must be engaged
- Technology needs to be used in a beneficial way
At the conclusion of Wray’s presentation, members headed to the Ohio Chamber Annual Meeting, enjoyed an awards presentation and participated in an open discussion with charismatic Former Speaker John Boehner. Boehner shared his story, his thoughts on today’s political climate and his opinions on the future of America. He focused a considerable amount of time on issues right here at home in Ohio. “We have an environment in Ohio that lets anyone do whatever they want to do from pursuing education, innovating or climbing the business ladder.” His advice to members, “If you are going to live with yourself and be honest with yourself, then just BE yourself.”
It was a productive and exciting day for members and staff, who are already looking forward to next year’s event.
