UTC Members Elect Day, Mayson, and Vondrasek to Leadership Positions

Arlington, Va., May 24, 2022 Utility Industry representatives from across the U.S. elected Dewey Day of Pacific Gas & Electric Company as the new Chair of the Utilities Technology Council Board of Directors, effective through May 2023.  Day was elected at UTC’s 2022 Telecom & Technology Conference’s Membership Meeting, held on May 18 in Oklahoma City, Okla.

At the meeting, utility representatives approved Chair Day as well as Kirt Mayson of NorthWestern Energy as Vice-Chair, and Gary Vondrasek of JEA as Secretary/Treasurer. Each will serve in these capacities until the membership elects new officers during UTC’s 2023 Telecom & Technology Conference in Ft. Lauderdale scheduled for May 2023.

Representing members of all sizes and ownership structures, UTC advocates for access to the information and communications technologies (ICT) needed for the safe and reliable delivery of mission-critical services.

“I would first like to thank our outgoing Chair Paul Lambert for his steadfast leadership of UTC over the last year,” Acting Chair Day said. “During his tenure, we faced unimagined challenges, and Paul’s leadership was key in developing a resiliency that has made us and our members even stronger than before. Thank you, Paul, for your unwavering commitment to UTC and our industry.”

“My thanks also to the UTC Board for this honor. This last year continued to throw an unprecedented number of challenges our way, from historically damaging storms, to the continued pandemic, to an unstable and tragic international situation in Ukraine. Yet at every turn, our industry has responded with resilience. Throughout my term, I look forward to working with my fellow colleagues and the UTC team to collaborate and build upon our successes. Our industry is truly essential to the economic livelihood of our nation, and I am proud to be a part of it. My congratulations to Vice-Chair Mayson and Secretary/Treasurer Vondrasek.”

Chair Day is a Principal Operational Technology Architect at Pacific Gas & Electric Company.  He has 28 years of experience designing fiber optic, microwave, and radio communications systems supporting utility needs throughout PG&E’s 79,000 square mile service territory.  Chair Day served for 15 years on the WECC telecommunications workgroup before joining UTC’s leadership team.  At UTC, he served for four years as Chair of the Public Policy Division prior to being elected to the Executive Committee.  Chair Day has a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from California State University, Fresno.

“Congratulations to Chair Day, Vice-Chair Mayson, and Secretary/Treasurer Vondrasek,” said UTC President and CEO Sheryl Osiene-Riggs. “Once again, the UTC Membership has elected a slate of proven leaders who will continue to push us forward. Chair Day is a UTC veteran, and I am excited about the next year and beyond. I also want to offer my profound and humble thanks and salute to Immediate Past Chair Lambert.  I am so thankful for his leadership and support! We all owe Paul a huge debt.”
