Event Overview

As coronavirus cases continue to grow across America, challenging days still lie ahead for electric cooperatives.  It has never been more important for co-op HR professionals to share their insights and learn from their peers.  This event provides the perfect opportunity for you to do so!

Every participant will be engaged in a meaningful way.

During this high-impact, virtual mini-conference, you’ll have focused discussions in small breakout groups with other co-op HR professionals from around the nation. You’ll gain critical insights into the key lessons they’ve learned during the crisis, and you’ll get to share what you’ve learned as well. 

You’ll also hear from the Founder and CEO of GreatCo-Ops about what our team has learned from our clients this year and from over 1,000 co-op employees.

3. The biggest challenges ahead for you and/or your HR team and how they can be overcome
