The NRECA Board Leadership Certificate recognizes individuals who continue their professional development after becoming a Credentialed Cooperative Director. Directors who have attained the BLC have completed 10 credits in advanced, issues-oriented courses.
Victory Electric board trustee, Jim Ochs, recently received the Board Leadership Certificate from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
An ever-changing business environment has imposed new demands on electric cooperative directors, requiring increased knowledge of changes in the electric utility business, new governance skills and a solid knowledge of the cooperative principles and business model. Victory Electric has a commitment to work through Kansas Electric Cooperative and NRECA to sharpen this body of knowledge for the benefit of their electric cooperative consumer-owners.
