October is National Cooperative Month Celebrate with White River Electric Association

White River Electric Association is inviting all to celebrate cooperatives in Colorado – and across America – during National Cooperative Month.

      Every October, cooperatives are recognized for the qualities that make the business model unique. Seven cooperative principles set us apart from other businesses: voluntary and open membership; democratic member control; member’s economic participation; autonomy and independence; education, training and information; cooperation among cooperatives; and concern for community.

      This Co-op Month, we’re focusing on “The Electric Co-op Connection: Discover the meaning of membership.” Co-ops exist to serve their members, but they also play a major role in their local communities.

      Cooperative membership is unique.  Electric cooperatives are committed to providing members with safe, reliable and affordable electricity, but there’s more to it than that. We’re local, and that means we care about our community. This is why we participate in programs such as the Fall Festival, Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials, Cowboy Shootout Basketball Tournament and contribute to the RBC 4-H and Meeker School District.

      White River Electric is proud to be part of America’s cooperative network, which includes more than 47,000 cooperative businesses including credit unions, food co-ops and agricultural co-ops.

      White River Electric Association is one of more than 900 electric cooperatives, public utility districts and public power districts serving 42 million people in 47 states.

       In the 1930s, rural America needed electricity just as much as anyone else. It was a major challenge that big utilities weren’t interested in tackling. So, the men and women of rural America banded together and made it happen. And that’s why we celebrate in October – we celebrate the power of working together for the common good and bettering the quality of life for our friends and neighbors.
