Behind the Doors of the AUC Hearing Room

September 28, 2022 @ 2:30 pm 4:30 pm MDT

Educational Networking Event + Wine & Cheese on September 28.

At this upcoming Women+Power event, Carolyn Dahl Rees, Chair of the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), will be giving a tour behind the doors of the AUC Hearing Room. Following the tour, there will be a brief Q&A and networking session with wine and cheese. You will be joined by additional commissioners at the AUC and fellow members of Women+Power.

An AUC hearing is a regulatory review process, where participants present ideas and receive feedback. This event offers a first-hand opportunity to learn and gain confidence about the AUC hearing process. It is also an excellent networking opportunity for all in solidarity with Women+Power.
