Jim Welsh, president and general manager of Kissimmee Utility Authority, will speak at the American Public Power Association's National Conference and Public Power Expo on Monday, June 20, 2005 at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, Calif. Welsh's presentation will begin at 2:45 p.m. PST.

The conference features over 50 sessions focusing on utility governance, customer service, workforce, broadband services, power supply, the environment, small system management and public power legislative issues.

The conference attracts more than 2,000 mayors, city council members, elected and appointed utility board members, senior utility executives, industry vendors and guests.

Welsh will address recruitment and retainment of staff as utilities nationwide compete against other industries for technical and skilled employees. His session will identify specific human resource policies that can enable utilities to become "employers of choice" in their communities.
