Dominguez, a native of Nogales, AZ, and a Nogales High School alumna, graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2015. Since graduating, she has worked as a history teacher at Nogales High School, as well as at the FPAA, helping with specific projects related to the Unisource utility rate case.

“It is an honor to be working with an organization that does so much for our community. I am thankful for the opportunity, and I look forward to contributing to the association and the new challenges that lie ahead,” Dominguez said.

“We are excited to have Erika working with the FPAA,” said Lance Jungmeyer, president of the FPAA. “She is an intelligent, hard worker that will bring a lot to this position. She has shown time and again that she is a fast learner that goes above and beyond to deliver on key projects. We are lucky to have her working on behalf of our members.”

Dominguez will be responsible for coordinating the FPAA’s communications activities, including coordinating outreach to reporters, and overseeing the FPAA’s website and social media. In addition, she will also focus on some specific policy issues that the FPAA monitors on behalf of the members.

“Erika is going to bring a lot to the FPAA and its members,” added Allison Moore, legislative and regulatory affairs director for the FPAA. “This will expand our ability to positively impact our members’ businesses.”
