“We are pleased to welcome Georgetown to the AMP membership,” AMP President/CEO Marc Gerken said. “Several years ago, the AMP Board established criteria for membership that has guided the organization’s growth and continues to ensure the financial stability of AMP and its members. The partnership between AMP and its members is beneficial to all. We look forward to working with the utility in meeting the challenges of a complicated and ever-changing industry. Additionally, the economies of scale and further diversification benefit all AMP members.”
