Cooperative member-owners are best served by directors who are well-versed in democratic principles and who understand the industry and how this industry can move forward to meet changing demands. Their education is the cornerstone of effective self-governance.
Recently, David Brag completed three NRECA training programs for the board: the Credentialed Cooperative Director Certificate (CCD) program, Board Leadership Certificate (BLC) program and Director Gold Credential program. The CCD program consists of five courses that focus on basic governance knowledge and essential skills required of cooperative directors.
The BLC program consists of a series of courses focusing in greater depth on specific industry and governance issues. The Director Gold Credential program recognizes directors committed to continuing their education beyond the CCD and BLC and 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. These programs provide a valuable set of knowledge and skills that will benefit Nodak Electric and our members.
