On August 6, 2009, NERC submitted a petition for approval of certain amendments to its bylaws to FERC for approval. NERC explains that the proposed amendments will give the NERC BOT authority and flexibility to increase the number of trustees on the Board form the present number (i.e., eleven) to twelve, to be comprised of eleven independent trustees and the NERC President. NERC states that this amendment is appropriate because an additional trustee will better enable NERC to handle the expected workload and responsibilities confronting NERC over the next several years.
