When and Where:
  • May 10, 2012 (8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.)
  • The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, State College, Pa.
Who Should Attend:    
  • Directors of electric cooperative boards
  • An instructor-led course available in a one-day format only
Course Overview:     
  • Everything that the board or the organization does sends a message. Directors must be prepared to deal with increased scrutiny from members, the public, news media, legislators, regulators and others. This scrutiny can come from any direction, and a failure to address it only produces more. This course will help directors discuss and analyze how to best position their system at a time of public demands for accountability, ethics and transparency

Key Topics Include:    

  • The rise in demands for transparency and accountability
  • Why electric utilities, including co-ops, are in the headlights
  • Steps to address the new challenges: Getting your house in order, identifying strategies to strengthen and communicate your position, and why it is harmful to demonize those who challenge you or ask questions
