About

The Western Conference of Public Service Commissioners (Conference) is a regional association within the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC). The Conference has a Constitution, click here.

The Conference meets semiannually – in Summer (traditionally June) in one of the 14 Western states and in November at the annual NARUC meeting. Additional meetings of the conference may be held at the request of the President with concurrence from the Executive Committee.

At the Summer meeting, annual reports are given by the President and the Secretary/Treasurer; reports are given by each committee chair stating the purpose of the committee (mission statement), its membership’s desire to continue the committee and its budget request for the new fiscal year. The Conference budget for the new fiscal year is voted upon and new officers are elected.

At the November meeting reports are given by the Secretary/Treasurer; committee chairs on their activities; other reports as requested; the services of the Conference Coordinator are renewed; and other matters are considered.
