Cooperative Leadership Network
The Cooperative Leadership Network (CLN) helps electric cooperative board directors to advance consumer-centric utility innovations and best governance practices to better serve the energy and community needs of their members. We are electric co-op directors working locally for our members’ interests, and networked nationally to help each other meet the challenges of our changing technological, market and regulatory environments. CLN incorporated in 2015 to provide networking opportunities for cooperative directors to learn from each other by asking and answering questions, understanding industry trends and sharing ideas. We normally only see and talk to each other at industry events and it is difficult to maintain those relationships with so much time and distance between meetings.
