Legislative Conference

Join other electric cooperative leaders online in April to discuss priority legislative issues and hear from members of Congress and administration officials.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​NRECA will convene the 2021 Legislative Conference in an online format. Although the event will be different, the program will include familiar elements that have always made the Legislative Conference a valuable opportunity for leading advocates in our electric cooperative movement to directly engage with elected officials and one another. Virtual briefings on priority policy issues and training for “virtual advocacy” will be conducted on April 19 in preparation for online meetings with members of Congress and administration officials. On April 20-23, “virtual advocacy” meetings will be coordinated with your elected representatives and their staff.​
