Electric cooperatives are locally owned by their members and governed by an elected board of directors who are also consumer-owners of the cooperative. These directors play a crucial role in determining the strategic direction and priorities of the cooperative. From environmental laws to 金融 matters to cybersecurity and technology advancements, the electric industry is incredibly complex and changing rapidly. 为了有效治理, co-op directors need to have a thorough understanding of these issues.
An effective board of directors is a high priority for electric cooperatives. Locally elected from among the consumer-owners of the cooperative, most have no previous experience with the utility business. The duties of directors are outlined in state statute and the co-op articles of incorporation and bylaws. The duties of a director include obedience, 勤奋, and loyalty; summed up as director “fiduciary duties.”
The fundamental responsibility is to be engaged, informed and faithful fiduciaries and gatekeepers, protecting the long-term interests of members (stockholders) and other important constituencies, 包括监管机构, 员工, 客户, 和公众. Being engaged and acting on an informed basis requires directors to understand the operations, 金融 model and strategy for the electric cooperative.
Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) certification program provides electric cooperative directors with the foundation of knowledge needed to effectively provide leadership. The CCD certificate is awarded upon completion of five courses in the 2600-level curriculum and a learning assessment for each. We recommend board members earn this credential during their first three-year term on the board of directors. 篮球外围平台 offers the full five-course program every two years. See course descriptions and schedule.
Directors who have earned their CCD certificate are eligible to earn the NRECA BLC. This certificate is earned by completing a total of 10 credits from the 900-level courses. These courses are designed to be “challenger” workshops on key current issues.
