Indiana Utility Regulatory Commissioner Carolene Mays was recently elected secretary/treasurer of the Mid-America Regulatory Conference (MARC), which is an association of regional organizations of utility and energy regulatory agencies from 15 states. There are three officers of MARC who serve for a one-year term.
“Commissioner Mays’ appointment to MARC demonstrates her level of commitment and expertise as a regulator,” said Chairman Jim Atterholt. “It is a tribute to Commissioner Mays that her colleagues are already looking to her for leadership.”
Since being appointed to the IURC in February 2010, Commissioner Mays has also been appointed to several committees for the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC). Specifically, she is on the NARUC Committee on Water as well as the NARUC Committee on Critical Infrastructure.
NARUC is the national association representing the State Public Service Commissioners who regulate essential utility services, including energy, telecommunications, and water.
Mays is a former state legislator and was the president and publisher of the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper.
