REC’s Communications Team Receive National Recognition

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s (REC) Communications and Public Relations Department received national recognition for their communication efforts from the Cooperative Communicators Association (CCA).

REC was presented with two first place awards for projects related to the Cooperative’s involvement in the NRECA International’s Project Bolivia. Ryan White, digital media specialist, won first place for the Project Bolivia video he produced. Likewise, the team won first place for their use of social media in creating the Project Bolivia Facebook Blog that kept family, friends and the community-at-large updated while the crew was working in Bolivia.

The team also won second place in advertising for the #WeAreREC Community ad.

“REC’s Communications and Public Relations department is dedicated to keeping member-owners informed and engaged with our Cooperative,” said Casey Hollins, director of communications and public relations. “Member feedback shows that our member-owners recognize and appreciate our communication efforts. We work hard to ensure that our messages are clear and effective, and that we go beyond our member-owners’ expectations.”

The CCA is an organization of 300 professionals who communicate for cooperatives. The organization is unique in both its mission and membership as it works towards helping members excel in communications. CCA emphasizes ideas and strategies aimed at making communications more successful for cooperatives.
