President’s Preview

In this summit soft opener, you have two unique opportunities to connect, share pandemic-related issues, explore the bells and whistles of the meeting platform, get firsthand information on the new emergency task force, and gain insights from a bonus-session panel.

Pulse of the Pandemic: How Are We Doing?

NARUC President Brandon Presley invites you to an engaging, interactive session, where commissioners and others can share how the pandemic has affected your communities, industries, and your lives.

As an attendee, you’ll get to meet members of the Emergency Preparedness, Recovery and Resiliency Task Force and learn more about its mandate.

Your input matters — the information you share can help guide key aspects of NARUC’s priorities.

Join us for this can’t-miss special session!
