Given the challenges of the evolving energy landscape, effective communications from the cooperative is an area of increasing importance. Whether communicating future rate increases or advertising our cooperative’s participation in renewable energy programs, strong communication programs can strengthen your identity with member-consumers and build loyalty.

Key topics:

  • The purpose of a communications policy
  • The value of a message
  • How a cooperative can manage messages and public perception
