Join us in Austin and hear PUCT Commissioner Shelly Botkin. Governor Greg Abbott appointed Shelly Botkin to serve as a commissioner on the Public Utility Commission of Texas on June 11, 2018, for a term set that expires on September 1, 2019. Before her appointment, Commissioner Botkin served as Director of Corporate Communications and Government Relations for the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) where she worked to build awareness of the organization’s vital role in managing the electric grid for most of Texas. Prior to joining ERCOT, Shelly worked ten years in the Texas capitol as a senior policy analyst on business, regulatory, and environmental issues for two state senators and for both the Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the House. After growing up in Lubbock, Shelly earned a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis.

At 11:55 AM, any available non pre-paid seats will be released for purchase by walk-in registrants. Seats will be allocated to walk-in registrants based on the time of the walk-in registrants arrival.
