Representatives of West Central Electric Cooperative met with Sen. David Pearce Feb 4-5 during the 7th annual Legislative Conference hosted by the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives in Jefferson City.
They joined with more than 200 rural electric cooperative leaders from across Missouri for the two-day event intended to keep them informed on statewide issues that could adversely impact their ability to deliver safe, affordable and reliable electric service to the state's 650,000 cooperative members. Topics addressed included metal theft, right-of-way access for rural broadband Internet, net metering and transmission.
With a theme of "Powering Communities, Empowering Members," this year's conference also gave cooperative directors, managers and staff the opportunity to visit face-to-face with their elected officials, both during capitol visits and at an evening reception.
Attending the reception were (l-r) WCE General Manager Mike Gray, Sen. David Pearce, WCE Member Services Manager Steve Moore and WCE Branch Manager Brent Schlotzhauer.
