Critical Consumer Issues Forum
A former Florida Public Service Commissioner (2006–2009), Katrina McMurrian draws upon extensive regulatory experience to organize and facilitate relevant policy forums and to advise an array of entities on key regulatory and policy issues in the energy arena.
McMurrian currently serves as Executive Director of the Critical Consumer Issues Forum (CCIF), a unique national forum in which state utility regulators, consumer advocates, and energy companies – via a series of facilitated, interactive dialogues – engage in productive debate and often develop consensus on issues that are not only important to these three core communities but also to consumers, policymakers, and other stakeholders. As a result of this collaboration, CCIF has produced valuable reports on energy topics including grid modernization, distributed generation, consumer solutions, smart communities, electric transportation, resilience, and supporting electricity customers through times of crisis like COVID-19.
McMurrian also serves as Executive Director of the Nuclear Waste Strategy Coalition (NWSC), an ad hoc organization representing the collective interests of member state utility regulators, state consumer advocates, other state officials, tribal governments, local governments, electric companies with operating and shutdown nuclear reactors, and other public and private sector experts on nuclear waste policy matters.
In these roles, McMurrian frequently interacts with Congress; Administration officials; state and federal utility regulators; state and national consumer organizations; other state, tribal, and local officials; industry representatives; and numerous other public and private stakeholders. In addition, she serves on the Southwest Research Institute Board of Advisory Trustees and as a member of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the Institute for Nuclear Materials Management (INMM), and U.S. Women in Nuclear (U.S. WIN).
A Northwest Florida native, McMurrian received a Bachelor’s degree in finance and an MBA from Florida State University. She and her husband currently reside near Nashville, Tennessee.
