Wynn elected to key leadership post
The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association has elected Roanoke Electric Co-op CEO Curtis Wynn as vice-president of its board of directors.
The announcement came during the association’s recent annual meeting in San Diego, where more than 5,500 electric co-op representatives from across the United States convened.

“I have every confidence that NRECA’s board of directors and new leadership team will make the national association even stronger, and I’m excited for the opportunity to be a part of it,” Wynn said. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to work in this capacity.”
