Electric Cooperative Members and Cooperative Living Readers are Invited
to Submit Nominations for the Distinguished Friend of the Electric Cooperatives Award!

The Distinguished Friend of the Electric Cooperatives Award, established in 2004, was created as a way to honor legislators and regulators in the three-state region who have been vigilant in protecting the interests of electric cooperative consumers. Nominees should be recommended primarily for statewide efforts although regional or national activities may be included. The award will not necessarily be given each year, but will be reserved for legislators or regulators who, in the committee’s view, embody the guiding principles
