GRDA CEO named to American Public Power Association board

Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) CEO and director of investments Dan Sullivan accepted an appointment to the American Public Power Association (APPA) board of directors. The APPA board made Sullivan’s appointment official during its October 7 meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this board and look forward to providing input on the many issues our industry faces,” said Sullivan. “It is also essential that Oklahoma continues to have a seat at this important table.”

Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) General Manager Cindy Holman, who has recently retired, previously held Sullivan’s new post. Sullivan will finish Holman’s term and then be eligible for election to a full board term.

Sullivan has been a member of the APPA CEO Climate Change and Generation Policy Task Force since July 2012. That group was formed in 2006 to assist APPA in developing policy positions on climate change. Last year, it expanded its mission to address the many environmental regulations impacting the nation’s public power utilities.
