HRECC IS WATCHING THE WINTER WEATHER!
Hickman-Fulton Counties RECC Directors
In Today’s Electric Utility Competencies
Greg Grissom, President/CEO is pleased to announce that four board of Directors of HFRECC, David Kimbell, Vercel Bryant, Jerry Graham and Ralph Wayne Adams have received their Credentialed Cooperative Director certificates from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
HFRECC realizes that an effective board of directors is a high priority for electric cooperatives and extraordinary board governance requires a strong commitment to learning. The fundamental responsibility of a board of director is to be engaged, informed and faithful fiduciaries and gatekeepers, protecting the long-term interests of member/consumers and other important constituencies, including regulators, employees, and the public. Being engaged and acting on an informed basis requires directors to understand the operations, financial model and strategy for the electric cooperative. HFRECC has a commitment to work with NRECA and the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives to sharpen this body of knowledge for the benefit of their electric cooperative consumer-members.
National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) certification program is a week long training session that provides electric cooperative directors with the foundation of knowledge needed to effectively provide leadership. The five core courses include Director Duties and Liabilities; Understanding the Electric Business; Board Roles and Relationships; Strategic Planning; and Financial Decision Making.
TVA's 1.5 percent rate increase went into effect on October 1, 2013. At this time, Hickman-Fulton Counties RECC will not be passing this rate increase onto our members. HFRECC's board and employees work diligently to manage our controllable costs. We partner with other electric distribution cooperatives and municipal electric systems to encourage TVA to also control its costs and minimize rate increases. We call on our legislators to take responsible action on energy issues – a demand that is quickly surpassing the supply of electricity, rising costs, and environmental concerns.
