Who steers our magazine content and the type of services we offer? Utility communicators like you! Our Communications Committee met in Portland, Oregon this week. Curious? Here are a few of their ideas for our Co-op’s exciting future:
- “Share your Story” booth: a banner and support materials helps your members connect with their local writers. (Great idea from Todd at Douglas Electric!)
- T-shirt designs focusing on the seven co-op principles.
- Dual-purpose calenders could feature annual reports, member handbooks or meet other member communication needs’.
- An idea book could feature templates of materials such as annual reports, brochures, holiday celebrations, safety information and more.
Jim Donahue was elected as the new chair of the committee, while Corby Gardner was elected as vice chair. After leading the committee for the last two years, Jeff Cromie passed the gavel to Jim Donahue. Corby was elected vice chair. Thanks for your service, Jeff Cromie. Congratulations Jim and Corby!
