SECC’s governing board is comprised of 15 members who represent utilities, consumer advocacy organizations, technology companies and other industry stakeholders, along with SECC’s president and legal counsel. The Board of Directors has staggered terms, with approximately half of the directors elected each year to a two-year term.
The following six directors have recently been elected by SECC’s membership to serve alongside the continuing board members:

Laura Cornish, a group product manager in Uplight’s Activate Product Line
Branndon Kelley, senior vice president of technology and chief information officer at American Municipal Power
Dave Reim, the president and co-owner of Questline, Inc.
“These new board members bring a wealth of experience to our organization,” said Nathan Shannon, SECC’s President & CEO. “I look forward to working alongside them and the rest of the board to deliver on our mission to learn about consumers’ needs and help them benefit from smart energy technologies.”
In addition to the new board members, Jonathan Bach, current board member and manager of strategic partnerships and ventures at Xcel Energy, was recently named vice chair of the board, where he will serve alongside SECC’s Board Chairman Lincoln Wood, the electrification policy manager for Southern Company.
