Director John Houser from Chariton Valley Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CVEC) recently received the Credentialed Cooperative Director 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 electric utility business, new governance skills and a solid knowledge of the cooperative principles and business model.

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

- Strategic Planning
- Financial Decision Making
Please join CVEC in recognizing John Houser for his diligence in staying educated and his ongoing commitment to your cooperative.
