From growing suburbs to rural farming communities, America's electric cooperatives have distinct challenges and opportunities that require innovative solutions. Working together, our electric co-op members accomplish things that would be costly, difficult or even impossible to do alone. That's the cooperative way, and it's the foundation of NRECA's commitment to be a strategic, solutions-focused partner to our members and a powerful force for bringing co-op leaders together to share ideas and solve common challenges.

Driven by member feedback and engagement, we strive to anticipate, shape and respond to changes in technology, law and public policy and support economic development in local communities across the country. Through the broad range of products and services in the areas of outreach and advocacy, workforce development, operational business strategies and employee benefits, we work to fulfill our mission to be the trusted resource, champion the cause, and inspire the future of the electric cooperative movement every single day.
