Born out of electric industry restructuring, the Restructuring Roundtable has been meeting four to six times per year since 1995 to discuss current topics related to revolutionary changes in the electric power industry in Massachusetts and throughout New England. Attendance at the Roundtable meetings averages over 200, with attendees representing a broad cross-section of regional stakeholders.
Dr. Jonathan Raab serves as the convenor and moderator of the Roundtable and is responsible for developing the agenda, securing speakers, and facilitating the meetings. The Roundtable is hosted by the law firm Foley Hoag LLP and funded by participating sponsors.
