Commissioner David Clark, of the Public Service Commission of Utah, was appointed to the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners Board of Directors by NARUC President and Iowa Utilities Board Member Nick Wagner.
Clark was appointed to the PSC by Governor Gary Herbert on January 1, 2013, and was reappointed on March 1, 2019. He serves on NARUC’s Committee on Electricity and is a member of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, the Member Advisory Committee of the Western Electric Coordinating Council, the Steering Committee of the Northern Tier Transmission Group and the Western Interconnection Regional Advisory Body.
He served previously on the PSC as the Commission’s legal counsel since 2010. During his 22-year legal career in California, he represented energy and telecommunications utilities in administrative hearings and practiced corporate law for a public utility holding company, serving as manager of its legal division. Commissioner Clark began his law practice as a member of the United States Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He received his undergraduate and law degrees from Brigham Young University. He founded a financial services business in the banking sector and has been engaged in volunteer community service, including service on several boards.
“I highly value my association with NARUC and am deeply honored by this expression of trust and confidence. I pledge to President Wagner and fellow board members my best efforts to assist in furthering NARUC’s outstanding record of service to the public utility commissioners of this country,” said Clark.
“I am pleased to welcome Commissioner Clark to our board,” said Wagner. “His keen knowledge of utility and regulatory issues and steady approach will facilitate enhanced collaborative engagement among members and stakeholders as we move deliberately and strategically to advance the Association’s mission.”
The NARUC Board of Directors consists of the president, the first vice president, the second vice president, the treasurer, each past president who is an active member and 20 other active members representing state commissions. Clark’s’ term on the board expires October 31, 2022, but he may be reappointed by NARUC’s Executive Committee.
