NDAREC Awards Program
2018 AWARD CATEGORIES
Nominations will be accepted when e-mailed on or before the Oct. 17 deadline.
This award recognizes outstanding leadership demonstrated by a rural electric director or manager. As a result of the individual’s efforts, cooperative philosophy and principles were promoted and the prestige of rural electric cooperatives enhanced.
The Helping Hand Award recognizes faithful friends and strong supporters of North Dakota’s rural electric cooperatives. The individual may be any publicly elected or appointed official, residing in or out of state, or a North Dakota cooperative member or citizen.
This award recognizes rural electric cooperative directors, managers and employees for their individual volunteerism — community involvement and services offered outside the normal scope of delivering electric service and job responsibilities.
This award category was recently revised by the NDAREC Professional Development Committee, and will first be awarded in 2017. It is presented to NDAREC distribution and G&T member-systems that have made significant and lasting contributions to community development in their service territories and to the state of North Dakota.
