Envisioning Tomorrow

Welcome to the AIEC Annual Meeting.

The past 18 months put the breaks on many things. Despite that, we have found innovative ways to serve member co-ops, safely educate employees, and keep the spread of the virus to a minimum. We’re now beginning to see how the pandemic has changed our way of doing business and can look to a brighter tomorrow. This annual meeting looks to the future to prepare us for our next 80 years.

Meeting Speakers and Highlights

  • A session on leading people who are different from you from Dave Taylor, President/CEO, LDR
  • A final report from outgoing NRECA Director Phil Carson
  • The latest on electric trucks built here in central Illinois from Zach Dietmeier, Director of Communications, Rivian Manufacturing
  • An update from Phil Irwin, President/CEO, Federated Rural Electric Insurance Exchange
  • A Leaders’ Luncheon keynote from Thomas Halverson, President/CEO, CoBank
  • How the CEO (Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities) program is helping bring young adults back to their small towns from Austin Brooks, executive director, Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship
  • How one co-op is addressing safety from Sean VanSlyke, CEO/GM, SEMO Electric Cooperative
  • A panel discussion with entities that have benefited from USDA Rural Development funding from Mary Warren, Business Programs Director, USDA Rural Development
  • An electric industry update from Mark Pruitt, Principal, The Power Bureau

So, come, learn, network and enjoy. We’re looking forward to seeing you in July!
