Chariton Valley Electric Cooperative Director Achieves Credential in Today’s Electric Utility Competencies
Director Marchelle Brown from Chariton Valley Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CVEC) recently received the Board Leadership Certificate (BLC) from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).
The Board Leadership Program consists of a series of courses focusing in-depth on specific energy industry and board governance issues. These issues include risk management, power supply, governance, financials, communications and policy development. Directors who have attained the BLC credential have completed 10 credits in these advanced, issues-oriented courses that foster a learning environment characterized by critical thinking, open discussions and case studies designed to prepare directors to meet today's governance challenges faced by CVEC.
“Earning the Board Leadership Certificate demonstrates Marchelle’s pursuit to continue her professional development as a director of CVEC, said CEO/General Manager Leilani Todd. We encourage all CVEC directors to continually sharpen their knowledge for the benefit of our cooperative members.”
The ever-changing business environment continues to impose new demands on electric cooperative directors, requiring increased knowledge of changes in the electric utility business, new governance skills and a solid knowledge of cooperative principles and business model. CVEC commends Marchelle Brown for her ongoing commitment to the cooperative and the membership!
Congratulations Director Brown!
