Continental Divide Electric Cooperative uses community outreach to energize its annual meetings

If you’re having a hard time engaging member-owners to attend annual meetings or participate in the voting process, take a look at what Continental Divide Electric Cooperative (CDEC) has done to encourage mutual benefits for their cooperative, members and community.
