Testimonials from previous workshop attendees:

Southern Pine ElectricConexon's workshop superseded my expectations. The experts at Conexon clearly understand all the ins and outs of the industry and the coop landscape of today. The content was educational and the opportunities to network and talk with other coop attendees were very valuable. I plan to send additional employees and directors to the workshop in Texas to continue building on our learnings and to hear additional updates and insights from the Conexon team and other attendees.

- Jason Siegfried, CEO

Delta ElectricI do want to thank everyone at Conexon for the very informative workshop that you put on in Atlanta. I would not change anything about the format. I really enjoyed the testimonials and panel discussions from the cooperative general managers, contractors and marketing specialists, along with the opportunity to ask questions and network with everyone. I think the workshop was very well received by the other participants as well.

-David Obryan, General Manager

Thank you to our sponsors!
