Banquet Speaker: Sydney McNiff Johnson, Senior Advisor,
Global Energy Practice, Dentons
Sydney McNiff Johnson’s career has put her at the center of technology innovation and policy evolution over several decades. Corporate America, prominent NGOs and governments here and abroad seek out her insight on energy and environmental policy. As a prominent Beltway attorney now living in Idaho, Johnson makes an ideal banquet speaker for this year’s annual meeting.
As a senior advisor in Dentons’ global energy practice, Johnson is a skilled negotiator and wise business counselor. Her current practice focuses on bringing new energy technologies to market and guiding clients through the thicket of environmental policy challenges.
In August of 2015, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell appointed Johnson to a six-year term on the Board of Directors for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). She also serves on the Boards of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and the Women’s Council on Energy and the Environment (WCEE). Her civic engagements include service with the Idaho Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and Executive Committee of the Board for the National Symphony Orchestra. She was appointed to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Civil Nuclear Trade Advisory Committee (CINTAC) in March 2013 and served for two years as Vice Chair.
Previously, Johnson was president of Lockhart Strategies International, LLC, where she worked to bring emerging energy technologies and environmentally friendly products to market, developing pilot programs and championing relationships for firms in the public and private sectors.
Johnson is an active member of the U.S. Nuclear Infrastructure Council (NIC), which she helped co-found in 2002. The NIC convenes all major nuclear energy utilities, manufacturers, and suppliers to discuss regulatory, licensing, and supply chain issues. She previously served for six years as a member of the Board of Directors of the Wild Salmon Center in Portland, Oregon, working with Russia, Japan, South Korea, Canada, and western U.S. states to preserve wild salmon populations.
