VINITA, Okla. (AP) — Grand River Dam Authority CEO Dan Sullivan has been named to the American Public Power Association's Board of Directors.

The APPA appointed Sullivan at its meeting in Santa Fe, N.M., Monday.

Sullivan's post was previously held by Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority General Manager Cindy Holman, who has retired. Sullivan will finish Holman's term and be eligible for a full term.

Sullivan, a former state representative, has been a member of the APPA CEO Climate Change and Generation Policy Task Force since July 2012. That group was formed in 2006 to assist APPA in developing policy positions on climate change. Last year, it expanded its mission to address the many environmental regulations impacting the nation's public power utilities.

GRDA is a state-owned electric utility that serves almost 500,000 homes in Oklahoma.
