NDAREC welcomes new accountant

MANDAN, N.D. — The North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives (NDAREC) is proud to welcome Chantel Shorey as the newest addition to its staff. As NDAREC’s accountant, Shorey will oversee accounts payable and accounts receivable along with other financial duties, helping to ensure a strong financial future for the cooperative. She began her new role on Sept. 9. 

“We are thrilled to have Chantel join our team. Her high energy and strong work ethic, along with her experience with various kinds of software and electronic data storage, will help NDAREC in its efforts to navigate this new era,” says Josh Kramer, NDAREC general manager and executive vice president. “At the same time, her outgoing personality and eagerness to serve our members are traits we strive for at NDAREC.”

Shorey’s commitment to community and diverse background make her an excellent addition to NDAREC. Prior to pursuing a career in accounting, Shorey worked as a 911 dispatcher and a deputy sheriff. In 2018, she began her career as an accountant at the Bismarck Tribune. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in accounting through Dickinson State University and will graduate in May 2020. Originally from Robinson, North Dakota, Shorey lives in Lincoln with her husband, John, and their three children.
