Member Managers Conference held Jan. 22-23
Basin Electric staff and member cooperative managers met for the January 2019 Member Managers Conference Jan. 22-23 in Larchwood, Iowa.
The conference is held for Basin Electric and member cooperatives to work closely on issues. Starting in 2019, two conferences will be held each year to allow the membership to better see how activities are progressing throughout the year. The next conference is scheduled for this summer, July 16-17, in Deadwood, South Dakota.
On Jan. 23, the meeting included presentations on Basin Electric’s 2018 year-end financials, the 2019-2028 Basin Electric financial forecast, the 2019 member load forecast, and the power supply strategy statement and resource plan. There was discussion on member support services offered, as well as updates on the district meetings, strategic planning, N-7, and Dakota Gasification Company marketing.
Due to the inclement weather conditions surrounding the conference, managers who were unable to attend were invited to watch the meetings via WebEx.
