Thank a Lineworker Every Day

While deemed one of the most hazardous jobs in the market, the lineworker profession is often overlooked. Linemen work with thousands of volts of electricity atop power lines 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to keep electricity flowing to our homes, businesses and communities. 

A Rewarding Experience

In closing out my term as board president for the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives, I want to express my sincere thanks for the honor and privilege of serving in this position. I have truly been blessed to be a part of this great organization.
