The TECA grassroots committee met on Monday, Feb. 3, during the annual legislative conference to discuss important cooperative issues and grassroots initiatives.
Led by chairman Mike Partin of Sequachee Valley EC, committee members shared their success in soliciting co-op employees and members to take action against the EPA’s proposed regulations. These regulations would virtually end coal-fired power production in the U.S.
Committee members are directing all cooperative stakeholders to www.action.coop where, in less than one minute, they can add to the cooperative voice against these misguided regulations.
The group went on to discuss the upcoming “Co-op Connect” events, to begin this summer. During these events, lawmakers will have the opportunity to tour the co-op, meet employees and become further invested in the cooperative model of business.
The committee expects to reconvene in the early spring. Look for messages from the TECA grassroots committee to appear in newsletters and The Tennessee Magazine.
