Why Should You Attend this Program?
Strengthen Your Network
Participants describe MIP's comprehensive course content as high quality and challenging, helping them better understand the mix of functions necessary for cooperative success. But they also stress how much they benefit from idea sharing and networking with their classmates from across the country. Thanks to comments like these, the agenda is enriched with group activities and exercises that support the national MIP and cooperative networks.
Apply Your Learning to add Value
As a participant, you will have the chance to apply what you've learned in two projects: 1) a small-group project, and 2) an individual project. The small-group project is started in Madison with your assigned colleagues and worked on in between your units and in Madison. The individual project is completed at home and is designed to benefit you and your organization through the application of concepts and tools gained in the classroom. Results of both projects will be shared with the class.
Who Should Participate
New CEOs/general managers, CFOs, COOs, vice presidents, and others in, or aspiring to, a co-op senior leadership role.
If you're not sure MIP is right for you, we invite you to take the Leadership Skills Assessment. Drawn from the Electric Cooperative Employee Competency models, our new
Leadership Skills Assessment was designed to help you understand which of NRECA's supervisory, management and leadership courses and events may be most appropriate for you.
