SECO Energy Trustee Joseph Kusiak Earns Director Gold Credential

SECO Energy congratulates District 7 Trustee Joseph Kusiak on earning his Director Gold Credential (DGC) from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). The DGC offers a continuing education path for directors/trustees beyond the Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) and Board Leadership Certificate (BLC).


According to the NRECA, the DGC recognizes directors/trustees who desire a tangible credential that demonstrates their ongoing commitment to advancing their knowledge and performing their fiduciary duty to the best of their ability.


SECO Energy is a not-for-profit electric cooperative, operated for, and owned by its members. SECO’s nine-member Board of Trustees consists of members who live in SECO’s service area. They are elected to oversee the governance of the cooperative. Each Trustee on the Board is elected by the members who reside in his/her District. Collectively, the Trustees are responsible for establishing, reviewing and revising corporate policies to ensure that SECO continues to preserve reliable, affordable service for all members.


Trustee Kusiak completed the required education credits to earn both his CCD and BLC in November 2019 and is proud to complete the credits for the Director Gold Credential. Mr. Kusiak stated, “I am proud to have completed the education requirements to earn the Director Gold Credential from the NRECA. Serving on SECO Energy’s Board of Trustees and garnering the trust of the members in District 7 is an honorable and rewarding experience. I look forward to continuing my Board service and celebrating SECO’s future success.”


CEO Jim Duncan stated, “Congratulations, Trustee Kusiak, on earning your Director Gold Credential and completing the NRECA’s director/trustee continuing education courses. I am thankful for your Board service and willingness to serve as your District’s representative on the SECO Energy Board and to serve as one of our co-op’s representatives on the Florida Electric Cooperatives Association board.”
