A Renewed NRECA Resolutions ProcessThe NRECA Board of Directors has taken historic steps to increase member involvement in the resolutions process, calling it essential to enhancing a sense of purpose and unity among electric cooperatives.
At its winter meeting at NRECA headquarters in Arlington, Va., the board approved more than 40 recommendations that a special Resolutions Review Committee developed during the last eight months. The committee included representatives from each state with NRECA voting members.
The board and the special committee strongly backed changes to the 70-year-old member resolutions process that is at the heart of the co-op movement, emphasizing the roles of statewide associations and regional meetings in boosting member participation.
NRECA President Michael J. Guidry said the actions will strengthen co-ops as they come together to address the complex challenges posed in the 21st century.
