Steve Hickok, deputy administrator of Portland, Ore.-based Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), has been elected by the member representatives committee of the North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) to serve as the members' chairman for 2008.

Hickok has served on one of four work groups that redesigned NERC's governance from a stakeholder board to an independent board of trustees that is advised by and supported by a stakeholder committee. He then served as an advisor to the trustees on preparing for implementation of U.S. federal legislation that would make NERC's standard setting mandatory and enforceable.

BPA is a not-for-profit federal electric utility that markets about 40% of the electricity consumed in the Pacific Northwest. The power is produced at 31 federal dams and one nuclear plant in the Northwest and is sold to more than 140 Northwest utilities.

NERC's members are the owners, operators, users and other stakeholders of the integrated bulk power system of North America.
