THE TRANSFORMATION AND CHANGE happening in
the electric energy workforce are truly historic
and monumental. Every day, our talented industry workforce is asked to help solve the puzzle of
providing safe, affordable and reliable electricity while moving toward the challenging zero
carbon goals, not to mention the heightened
awareness required in dealing with the mounting
physical and cyber security threats. Once again,
we present an opportunity for the workforce in
our organizations to solve the challenges we
face in our industry.
I thank the RMEL members for helping us
grow and develop our workforce by sharing
their experiences, strategies and success stories
through RMEL events and publications. I specifically want to thank the RMEL Board of Directors
and the Education Section Committees (Safety,
Generation, Transmission, Distribution and Vital
Issues) for designing a comprehensive program
of events every year targeting the needs of the
membership. That is what the RMEL mission is
all about.

This issue of Electric Energy magazine is an
exciting look at what's ahead for our industry.
We'll share a variety of member experiences from
workforce, technology, communication, security
and customer engagement perspectives. This
issue includes:
■ Executives Navigate "Strategic Inflection Point"
of the Electric Energy Industry-2019 RMEL
Vital Issues Forum & Fall Convention Recap
■ SRP Apprenti Program Trains Former Power
Plant Employees for Careers in Technology
■ The Future Was Yesterday-Electric Energy

for the future through education and networking.
