TVA Board Of Directors Hosts Virtual Meeting On May 6

Thursday, April 29, 2021

The Tennessee Valley Authority Board of Directors will again conduct its scheduled quarterly meeting in a controlled format at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 6, to comply with COVID-19 guidelines supporting the health and safety of TVA team members, the public and their families during the ongoing pandemic. 

Although revised pandemic guidelines will allow additional Board members to gather in the same location, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control guidance continues to limit additional attendance to minimal staffing in a controlled setting. The Board hopes to resume its normal meeting format as soon as safely possible.

Although physical distancing requirements continue to make in-person comments in a traditional listening session impractical, the Board encourages interested members of the public to make their opinions and comments heard through written comments. Individuals may submit written comments through the Board’s webpage at https://www.tva.com/board no later than 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 5. Individuals without computer access may contact Wilson Taylor, TVA’s ombudsman, at 865-776-7015. All comments will be presented to the Board members prior to their May 6 meeting.

The Board will consider the following agenda items:

2.   Report of the People and Performance Committee 
 
3.   Report of the External Relations Committee
