Chris White, City of Thomasville Executive Director of Public Utilities, was recently elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the Electric Cities of Georgia (ECG). The ECG’s Board of Directors is comprised of ten representatives from membership organizations from around the State of Georgia. Candidates must be nominated by their city’s voting delegates.
“It is an honor to serve with this highly-regarded group of utility professionals,” said White. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the members of ECG as we continue our mission of supporting the many significant business practices of our member cities.”
The Electric Cities of Georgia is a non-profit organization that provides strategic and technical services to fifty-two public power communities with utility operations. Their services are designed to maximize utility performances while creating successful communities with economic prosperity and opportunity. “The ECG has a rich history in Georgia’s communities, continually helping to supplement their abilities to compete for business and industry, while helping to build desirable places for people to live, work and play,” said White. “They have built an impressive reputation on the foundation of service to its members, with a staff that is truly the best of the best and experts in their respective fields.”
“We are very proud of Chris’s appointment to the Board of Directors for the Electric Cities of Georgia,” said Alan Carson, City of Thomasville City Manager. “Chris will serve his leadership role on the ECG Board in the same capacity that he handles all of his matters within the City of Thomasville, with an extreme amount of professionalism, pride and humbleness. This is not only an outstanding professional development achievement for Chris, it will also be of tremendous benefit to our community.”
Added White, “I am honored to represent the City of Thomasville as a municipal power provider both regionally and nationally. I look forward to fulfilling this responsibility that has been entrusted to me as a strong voice and an engaged representative for all ECG members.”
The vote was part of a special election to fulfill the remaining terms of two former Board Members. White will serve his term through December of 2021.
