SuperCconnector-01.pngThe 2021 Connect Conference is online and supercharged! This year we're all about possibilities and tapping into ways to realize our full potential as communicators, marketers and member services professionals.

Think about it: did you make the impossible possible over the past year? Did you come up with skills and talents you didn’t know you had? What lessons did you learn from your struggles? And most important, how are you going to use your newfound superpower to approach old challenges? Can you work smarter, stronger, faster?

Three general sessions, 12 breakout sessions and 10 "Power Packs" will give you the tips, tools and inspiration you need to transform "business as usual" to work that highlights your hidden talents and engages your members.

Connect Conference attendees will fly away better prepared to navigate the complex issues of fast changing and unexpected landscapes, new technologies, emerging consumer expectations and a marketplace where cooperatives must position themselves to be a trusted energy resource.

The Best Place to Gather New Ideas

Here's what past attendees have to say about Connect:

​"It translated the value of the in-person conference to online better than any I have participated in so far! It provided both good info and opportunities for connection with others."
Bethany Akridge, Communications Coordinator, Coastal Electric Cooperative

"This is the only event that is geared specifically towards Communications in our industry, so it's the most valuable one for us. I could go to design conferences and I could go to Electric Co-op conferences, but this one intersects both, which is great."
Sharilyn Fairweather, Multimedia Design Specialist, Flathead Electric Cooperative

​"Loved how the team was able to keep the fun and chatter that you'd find at an in-person Connect for the virtual event."
Shana Read, Director of Education and Training, KEC

"Worth the money and a great way to bring value to your role, find resources, tips or tools, and a refreshing motivational break from day-to-day work!"
Courtney J. Deinert, Manager of Communications, Central Electric Cooperative (SD)

"You won't find a more engaging and enthusiastic group of utility professionals to connect with. The carefully crafted topics have always been relevant and the instruction revelatory. Hands down, I highly recommend it!"
Jonathan Farmer, Manager, Member and Public Affairs, Lane Electric Cooperative
