Enrollment is still open for the Supervisor and Manager Development Program, scheduled for March 9-13.
Supervisors and managers have the unique opportunity to influence and inspire those who work for them – and this can make all the difference in the success of your co-op. Gallup polls consistently find that 17 percent of U.S. workers are "actively disengaged" at a cost to the U.S. economy $450-550 billion per year. The primary driver of that lost productivity? Poor supervision.
In light of these national statistics, the impending retirement wave of co-op leaders and the rapid changes occurring within our industry, NRECA has developed a program to provide co-op employees with the knowledge and skills they need to lead their teams through these changes and bolster the co-op overall.
JT&S has partnered with NRECA to bring the Supervisor and Manager Development Program to Murfreesboro, TN. It will be taught by Bryan Singletary, a sought after lecturer with 35 years of experience in the electric industry. To learn more about this program, take a look at the SMDP event page for more info.

Electric lineworker is the 11th most dangerous job in America. Despite extensive safety precautions and ongoing training, sometimes the worst can happen.
Funds raised through the purchase of the new lineworker plates go to the Tennessee Lineworker Lifeline Fund. This non-profit foundation serves lineworkers and their families when one of our own is killed or injured on the job. The state of Tennessee has approved the license plate, but they require 1,000 paid preorders before the plates are put into production. If we do not reach 1,000 commitments, you can request a full refund or donate your money to the foundation.
It is hard to predict exactly when the plates will be available. Once we receive 1,000 preorders, the state will put the plates into production. You will receive a letter when they are available for pickup at your local county clerk’s office. The timeframe depends on how quickly we reach 1,000 preorders and how much time it takes for the state to produce the plates.
Your $35 preorder will be applied to your first lineworker plate.
The Foundation is funded through sales of the Powering Tennessee lineworker license plates. Support the foundation by preordering your specialty plate today.
