She serves as the FERC liaison to the Department of Energy’s Electricity Advisory Committee. She is a member of the NARUC Committees on Electricity and Critical Infrastructure and was co-chair of the FERC/NARUC Forum on Reliability and the Environment.

Ms. Tezak is being honored as the 2015 WCEE Champion for her outstanding service and leadership of WCEE. She has been an active member of WCEE and has served in a variety of board roles since she first joined the organization in 1992. She served as President from 2004-2008. Throughout the many years of her work with WCEE, she has exemplified genuine dedication to WCEE and its members, and to its future.
