BURGAW — For the first time in the Cooperative’s history, every Four County EMC board member has achieved both a Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) and a (BLC) Board Leadership Certificate from National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).


Only two other Cooperatives in North Carolina have achieved this distinction.


The CCD is a series of classes that gives board members the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of today’s electric cooperatives. The BLC takes a board member’s knowledge and skills to an even higher level. To complete both the CCD and BLC each board member must complete 15 courses of training, which is a minimum of 120 hours of instruction time. After completion, each board member is recognized at a Regional Meeting or during the Cooperative’s Annual Membership Meeting.


Four County EMC is a member-owned electric cooperative serving more than 32,000 members in Bladen, Duplin, Pender, Sampson, Columbus and Onslow counties. The Cooperative is member-owned, not-for-profit, and overseen by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The board is responsible for planning, developing, operating and maintaining a reliable electric system to the counties served.
