The Lineman's Roundtable provides a forum for crews to exchange ideas on common issues
FMPA coordinates a semi-annual meeting for linemen at member utilities. The purpose of the roundtable is to provide a forum for crews to exchange ideas on operating practices, safety, training, tools and equipment, and any other common issues.

The Distribution Reliability Measurement Program compares distribution reliability data with other members and investor-owned utilities
FMPA offers a Distribution Reliability Reporting system that allows our members to compare their own Distribution Reliability to that of other FMPA members, as well as to investor-owned utilities. Participants submit data monthly via e-mail on an electronic report form provided by FMPA. FMPA collects the data from the participating members and issues a monthly Distribution Reliability Report to all participants. Data is compiled into an annual report, which includes investor-owned utility data as reported to the Public Service Commission.
