Valley Forge, Pa., May 17, 2012 — The PJM Interconnection Members Committee elected Sarah S. Rogers to the PJM Board of Managers.

Rogers contributes her strong industry knowledge as CEO of Florida Reliability Coordinating Council and her previous experience with Progress Energy, including her last position there as the vice president for transmission.
Neel Foster and Schneider were re-elected to three-year terms on the board.
