William "Bill" Seamone

William “Bill” Seamone began his career with the City of Concord’s Electric System in 1968 as a Ground Technician. Spending the first 20 years of his career as a lineman, Bill worked on line construction crews and later as the city’s trouble shooter. Bill’s favorite portion of his 40+ year career was his time as a trouble shooter, because he was able to meet and personally assist so many people on a daily basis. Over the course of his career Bill was active in the North Carolina Association of Municipal Electric Systems (NCAMES) and its parent organization, Electricities of NC. During his time with Electricities, he participated in the review and re-write of the organization’s Safety Manual and served on a team that monitored and maintained the Electricities Mutual Aid Program. Bill actively participated in leadership positions with NCAMES, including a term as President of the organization during 1993-94. He later served six years on the Board of Directors of Electricities of NC and in 2009 was awarded the NC Public Power Lifetime Achievement Award.
