Cooperative Principle 5: Education, Training and Information
Principle 5 reminds us that knowledge is key to success, in business and in life. Informed members provide the framework for an effective cooperative. That’s why communication with you is a priority for us.
The newsletter you’re reading right now is just one of the many avenues we use to keep you informed. It provides co-op news, information to help you save energy and money, and tips to keep you safe around electricity. We hope it also piques interest in your co-op and reminds you of the advantages of membership.
You can visit us online at eastcentralenergy.com or find us on Facebook and Twitter. We encourage you to sign up for SmartHub for easy access to your co-op and information about your energy use.
We’re also in the community, bringing lessons about electricity, conservation and safety to school classrooms and local events. We support student education through our scholarship program and sponsor two delegates each year on the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. We believe in well-trained employees too, supporting their participation in classes to enhance job skills and build safety awareness.
As a cooperative, we exist to serve you. The key to our success is education, training and information.
