CARILEC Successfully Concludes Annual Leadership Conference with High Ratings
Castries, Saint Lucia, June 8th, 2022 – The Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC) successfully concluded its premiere calendar event; the 2022 Chief Executive Officers’ (CEOs’) and Leadership Conference with Corporate Governance Track. The event signalled the return of CARILEC’s face-to-face events, after a two (2) year hiatus, due to travel restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. From all indications, the event was a resounding success, with delegates indicating that they found the conference to be highly valuable, offering opportunities for networking, learning and development, and relationship and capacity building. Of particular importance to the Association is the opportunity presented by this conference to partner with its trusted member utility, Bahamas Power and Light Company Limited (BPL) in hosting the event. The BPL Team was an excellent co-host, bringing together several Bahamian government officials, artistes, cultural performers, and private sector corporations who all tremendously increased conference value.Under the theme ‘Leadership Matters: Living and Learning through Disruption and Dislocation’, the conference commenced on May 15th with a grand opening ceremony. This momentous event gathered several prominent delegates, including CARILEC’s & BPL’s Board of Directors; CEOs and senior managers from CARILEC’s utility, associate, affiliate, and independent power producer (IPP) members; Bahamian business CEOs and corporate governance executives and most notably, the conference keynote speaker, Honourable Philip Edward Davis, Prime Minister, and Minister of Finance of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. CARILEC also took this opportunity to hold its first in-person Board of Directors meeting, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This meeting was particularly significant, as board members discussed the way forward for the resurgence of CARILEC’s face-to-face conferences and other stakeholder engagements, and how such events would be managed amidst the pandemic.The post CARILEC Successfully Concludes Annual Leadership Conference with High Ratings first appeared on SKNIS.
