I enjoyed every minute of every day working here and meeting all of our wonderful members. My new job will allow me to continue in the electric cooperative world and allow me to serve more cooperatives and members across the US. Electric Cooperatives are the greatest organizations that not only distribute electricity to their members, but truly care for the well being of their members and Rural America. The Board of Directors and employees at Central Wisconsin Electric Cooperative will continue this proud tradition. It has been an honor to serve you over the years.’
