SECO Energy congratulates District 2 Trustee Joyce Anderson on earning her Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) Certificate from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). The CCD is the first part of the NRECA’s Director Education Program.
According to the NRECA, directors/trustees seeking the CCD certification must complete five courses that focus on basic cooperative governance and the essential skills required of cooperative directors/trustees. The CCD prepares directors/trustees to fulfill their fiduciary duty as elected officials serving on behalf of their membership. Upon completion of the five CCD required courses, directors/trustees are awarded the Credential Cooperative Director Certificate.
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 Anderson is proud to represent her District on SECO Energy’s Board of Trustees. Mrs. Anderson stated, “I am excited to further pursue my Board education through the NRECA in order to fully represent the members in District 2. My former experience in the utility industry has prepared me for my role on SECO’s Board of Trustees. I am proud to complete the Credentialed Cooperative Director certification and look forward to continuing my Board education.”
CEO Jim Duncan stated, “Congratulations, Trustee Anderson, on earning your Credentialed Cooperative Director certification. 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.”
