TECA Annual Meeting

November 18, 2012 - November 20, 2012

Community is a powerful concept.

It’s a feeling that we experience with our families, friends, in our churches, clubs or organizations. It’s evidenced by our common interests, which leads to shared goals and unied focus. Community gives us strength.

The same is true of our co-ops. From day one, co-ops provided strength in numbers, and this leverage illuminated rural America. Together, we were stronger, and that strength survives today.

Our members, our co-ops, TECA, NRECA… We all have a role to play; as the gears fall into place, great things are accomplished.

Thank you for your contribution to the Tennessee co-op community, the Tennessee Valley community and the entire cooperative network that covers our nation.
