Live from the NRECA PowerXchange in Nashville
Up to 6,000 rural electric coop members and officers are expected to gather in Nashville for the annual conference of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). Chris Christensen, Director of NorVal Electric Cooperative, based in Glasgow, was selected to lead the national organization. Christensen is, to-date, the only Montanan that has served in that influential national role.
At the convention we’ll have the opportunity to discuss the issues facing Montana’s rural electric cooperatives with Chris, and other national leaders, such as NRECA CEO Jim Matheson. We’ll also talk with electric coop board members from across the state, including Gretchen Boardman, GM of Big Flat Electric, Malta, who will present a critical sage grouse resolution for consideration by the national body. Montana Rural Electric Cooperatives’ Association (MECA) Executive Director Gary Wiens, and MECA President DeeDee Isaacs, from Tongue River Electric Cooperative, are also scheduled.
