Twice a year, PATH is required to hold an "Open Meeting" to discuss their transmission revenue requirements with "interested parties." If you're interested in grilling PATH about how they're spending your money, or simply listening in as others do, then you're an "interested party."
PATH used to have real meetings at their outside counsel's DC office, but then they got all shy and punted on the live meetings in favor of phone "meetings."
Just because PATH is a party-pooper doesn't mean we are! We're still having breakfast parties twice a year, only instead of some stuffy legal conference room where the sound system doesn't work, we're holding the meeting on my patio (weather permitting) and serving donuts and mimosas. We'll connect to the "meeting" via phone and you're all invited to listen in and ask questions.
However, you need to "RSVP" for the meeting with PATH's counsel so you will be allowed to participate. Seating is limited (over the phone?) so reserve your seat today! The deadline to RSVP is Thursday, October 13. Details of what you need to do can be found here.
The "Open Meeting" will be held on October 19 at 10:00 a.m. and will last about an hour (or until we run out of questions, so bring your questions!) Once you have sent in your RSVP, you will receive meeting materials and details for hooking into the phone meeting via email the afternoon before the meeting. Just in case PATH sends you a toll call number (in order to discourage your attendance, since you'll have to pay for the call), check back here before the meeting to see if we've found an 800 number to use instead.
If you're coming to the party at my house, let me know at least a day in advance so I can have enough food and drink for everyone. If you can't make the party, you can still listen in to the call from where ever you are, but you need to RSVP with PATH to do so.
I promise you the "meeting" will be entertaining!
