Georgia EMC is pleased to announce a partnership with NRECA to offer online director education courses to the EMC Directors of Georgia this summer. We will offer the previously postponed  913.1 Cooperative Foundations: Co-op Legacy, Principles and Impact on Communities on August 6-7th. From 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. The class will meet for two consecutive days. Like our classroom-based offerings, these courses feature top instructors, group discussions and co-op specific content. Each course is divided into two sessions that are delivered over two consecutive days. After completing both days of the course, participants will earn one credit toward director education certificate requirements


Understanding the unique aspects of the cooperative business model better prepares directors to lead organizations with purpose, not profit, at their core. Course participants will explore the cooperative principles and define how they provide a competitive advantage for today’s co-op organizations.

Check out the video preview.



  • Describe the role cooperative business enterprises play in the world’s economy.
  • Distinguish the cooperative business model from other business models.
  • Articulate the seven cooperative principles and how those are applied in today’s electric cooperatives.
  • Understand the history of electric cooperatives –how and why they were created; the challenges they have overcome through the years.
  • Be able to identify future challenges facing electric co-ops and the cooperative business model.

In an effort to minimize cost for EMCs, we have created a tiered pricing structure for the courses. We must have a minimum of 15 participants registered for each course. EMCs will be invoiced, according to the following table, upon completion of the courses.
