Haywood EMC's newest Board of Director, Alan Israel, recently received the Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) certificate from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).
An ever-changing business environment has imposed new demands on electric cooperative directors, requiring increased knowledge of changes in the electrical utility business, new governance skills, and a solid knowledge for the benefit of their electric cooperative member-owners.
The NRECA Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) program requires attendance and demonstrated understanding of the basic competencies contained in five core courses:
- Director Duties and Liabilities
- Understanding the Electric Business
- Board Operations and Process
- Strategic Planning
- Financial Decision Making
Join us in congratulating Mr. Israel in obtaining this certification!
