Effective political engagement at all levels of government requires significant planning and is vital to empowering member-owners to protect and advance the interests of their cooperative. The power of distribution cooperatives to influence policy makers is vital to their continued success. This course helps directors connect the dots between what they as individual directors can do on behalf of their cooperative while maximizing relationships with their statewide and with NRECA to make sure the co-op voice is heard on Capitol Hill and in the regulatory agencies.

Key topics:
  • Strategies for engaging consumer-members in grassroots advocacy

  • Communicating with advocates and champions among the membership
  • Creating a political game plan
