MARC 2012 will offer stimulating and substantive sessions on key issues and challenges in the telecommunications, energy, and water sectors. In addition to traditional presentation and panel formats, participants will have opportunities to participate in educational off-site visits and simulation exercises. There will also be plenty of opportunities to interact directly with each other, sharing ideas and insights during informal networking sessions. Check here for details of the conference agenda.
MARC 2012 speakers include prominent economists and financial analysts, utility industry leaders, state and federal regulatory officials, academic researchers, and public interest group representatives. See the list of speakers
MARC 2012 participants will be treated to a variety of presentations and panel discussions on a wide range of energy, telecommunications, and water topics. Those who prefer more active learning will enjoy the chance to get out of the “classroom” for an informational site visit or a thought-provoking simulation exercise. Attendees will even have a chance to turn the tables on state regulators, during the closing “Commissioners on the Grill” panel when the commissioners take the stage to field questions.

MARC 2012 registrants interested in earning CLE credits for attending conference sessions can submit applications to their state for approval.
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy administered through NARUC, state utility commissioners and state employees have a special opportunity to enroll in a training program on electricity policy issues held during MARC 2012. Commissioners and staff who enroll and successfully complete this program will be eligible for DOE funding to reduce their travel expenses. We greatly appreciate this support from DOE and NARUC that will allow more commissioners and state employees to attend MARC 2012. Check here for more information about this program.
