As a member-owned, electric cooperative, we are always looking for ways to participate in the communities we serve. This commitment to communities is why we launched a Speakers’ Bureau.
Our Speakers’ Bureau is an experienced group of employees who are specially trained to conduct free educational and informational presentations within their seven-county service area. CEC speakers provide audiences with valuable information on a variety of topics, or they can customize a presentation to suit your needs. The presentation’s length is determined by your needs. We also welcome the opportunity to speak to groups during their lunch hour.
There is no charge for these speakers; the presentations are simply a great way for us to reach out and engage individuals in matters that affect all of us. Regardless of which topic you select, you can expect valuable energy-related information.
Our speakers provide audiences with valuable information on a variety of topics within the customer service, finance and accounting, administration, marketing and public relations, engineering, safety, information technology, human resources and electrical operations fields. Please see the list of available topics below. But remember, we can customize a presentation to meet your needs. So if you have a topic in mind and it isn’t listed, just let us know!
To schedule a speaker for your organization, call Renee Tritten at 800-521-0570 x2151.
