(925.1) Co-op Bylaws: Guiding Principles & Current Issues

Offered: Face-to-Face, On-site

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The continuing evolution of the structure of the electric industry in the U.S. has brought about increased scrutiny by consumers and regulators. As a result, many electric cooperatives are being challenged to make sure their bylaws adequately address new situations including changing membership, "large load" exceptions to some state territorial laws, diversified services, distributed generation, and changes in some state or federal laws and regulations. This course will assist directors, CEOs, and agents of electric cooperatives in undertaking a comprehensive review of the co-op's bylaws and highlight the implications that these changes, issues, and challenges bring to bear in future bylaw revisions.

KEY TOPICS

  • Overview of the role of bylaws
  • Member issues and expectations

  • Issues impacting co-op operations as not-for-profit corporations
