East-Central Iowa REC Director Gary McKenna recently earned his Credentialed Cooperative Director Certificate (CCD). The Credentialed Cooperative Director Certificate is an NRECA curriculum that consists of five courses that provide cooperative directors with essential knowledge and skills. The CCD is earned by attending all five required courses and successfully completing a learning assessment for each.
“In obtaining this certificate, Director McKenna has demonstrated to ECI REC members and other stakeholders his commitment to advancing his knowledge and performing his fiduciary duty to the best of his ability,” said ECI REC CEO Steve Marlow. McKenna was presented with his certificate at NRECA’s 2019 Region 5 and 6 Meeting, which was held September 10–12 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
