The New CEO Orientation is designed for new chief executive officers and general managers of electric cooperatives with no more than two years of experience in their current position. Interactive sessions will provide an in-depth look at key electric industry and cooperative management issues, challenges and opportunities that new CEOs face.
It’s an outstanding opportunity to meet and network with peers in a small group setting.
No Registration Fee!
This event takes place at NRECA's headquarters in Arlington, VA and CFC's campus in Dulles, VA.
What Your Peers Have to Say
"Go. It's an important resource for your CEO transition journey. Ask the questions that are confidential or you perhaps have not dared to ask and get guidance and answers. It's an important networking opportunity. That alone will provide you a valuable return on your investment of time.”
Kristin Dolan, CEO, Runestone Electric Association, Alexandria, MN
"If you haven't had much exposure to the staffs and programs of the various national organizations, you should attend in order to build that network of contacts. Even if you do know most of the people/programs of the various national organizations, you should still attend because you will benefit significantly from interacting with others who are new to the General Manager/CEO role.”
Dennis Cannon, President & CEO, Jackson Purchase Energy Corp., Paducah, KY
"It’s an informative meeting for new CEOs to learn about all the benefits and services that our national organizations provide for distribution cooperatives. You have the ability to network with CEOs that are facing the same issues, and an opportunity to hear from seasoned CEOs that have been where you are.”
Vicki Daily, General Manager/EVP, Grundy County REC, Grundy Center, IA
