This one-day session, conveniently scheduled the day before Energy Issues Summit, is designed for co-op directors, CEOs, and cooperative staff responsible for their co-op’s grassroots activities. The broad goal of the workshop is to build future strategy and unify our grassroots success across the state.  This will be a mix of sharing information, gathering ideas, and jointly developing plans.    Instructors will include outside expertise, along with MREA staff.

 

It would be great to have at least one participant from each cooperative, as we look to our membership to provide input during this event to help MREA build a stronger grassroots presence into the future.
