Rural Electric Cooperative Organizing Gathering (SOLD OUT) (By Application) (Full-Day) LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This gathering will be a space for rural electric cooperative (REC) member-owners and organizers to meet each other, learn from each other's work, access additional resources, discuss ways to build a new economy narrative through REC work, and plug into opportunities for regional and national collaboration. The focus will be on networking folks who are doing the work; we will also welcome people interested in getting more involved and supporting the work. There are more than 800 rural electric cooperatives owned by 42 million people across almost 75% of America's land area with $45B in annual revenue. REC’s are energy democracies and can be harnessed for broader economic democracy across a large swath of rural and suburban America.
