New Director Orientation

Designed to familiarize new directors and trustees of electric cooperatives with their national associations and resources available to support them in their new role.

Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 and state and local actions being taken to attempt to slow the spread of transmission, we have decided to cancel the New Director Orientation, March 17 – 19, in Arlington and Dulles, Va.

Please take steps now to cancel your travel plans, including your flight (many airlines are relaxing their cancellation policies), hotel, rental car, etc. If you have a reservation at the Holiday Inn Ballston, please call 703-243-9800 to cancel your reservation. NRECA has arranged for the waiver of any existing hotel cancellation fees.

Co-sponsored by NRECA, CFC, NRTC , and Federated, the New Director Orientation is a two and one-half day program designed for new directors and trustees of electric cooperatives who have served on the co-op’s board for less than two years. Interactive sessions will provide an in-depth focus on key electric industry issues and the challenges that new directors face.

No Registration Fee!

This event takes place at the Hilton Arlington, by NRECA's headquarters in Arlington, VA, and CFC's campus in Dulles, VA.
