TECA Annual Meeting – co-op custom

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Co-op leaders encouraged to “Build Up” Tennessee

[CO-OP HEADQUARTERS TOWN] – “Build Up” was the theme of the 76th annual meeting of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association, held Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 20 and 21, in Nashville. [Name], [position at co-op], [Name], [position at co-op], and [Name], [position at co-op] represented [CO-OP NAME] at the event.

They joined more than 350 electric cooperative leaders from across the state to explore the impact of co-ops and challenge one another to meet the needs of their communities.

“Co-ops provide safe, reliable and affordable electricity, but our impact goes far beyond energy,” says David Callis, executive vice president and general manager of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association. “We recruit jobs and investment; we prepare the next generation of leaders; we give back through charitable donations, taxes and payroll; and we are on the leading edge of a movement that will bring high-speed internet to rural communities. Electric co-ops build up Tennessee – creating opportunities, impacting families and positioning communities to grow and prosper.”

Attendees to the two-day event heard experts and industry leaders discuss topics important to rural and suburban Tennessee, such as regulations, finance, economic development, power supply and broadband.

“I am grateful that our directors sacrificed time with their families to attend this event,” says [CO-OP MANAGER NAME, TITLE]. “They are frequently asked to make tough decisions that impact the communities we serve. Training sessions like this help us operate a more efficient and reliable co-op.”

Callis concluded his comments during the event with this, “I’ll leave you with this challenge. Think carefully about your co-op and your co-op members. What are their needs? What are their expectations? What opportunities exist for your co-op to take action to improve everyday life for your members. We have an important role to play, and together co-ops can build up Tennessee.”

The Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association provides leadership, advocacy and support for Tennessee’s 23 electric cooperatives and publishes The Tennessee Magazine, the state’s most widely circulated periodical. Visit tnelectric.org or tnmagazine.org to learn more.
