Ron White, vice president of Member and Public Relations for Southside Electric Cooperative, has completed an intensive program in electric utility management with the University of Wisconsin.

The Robert I. Kabat Management Internship Program (MIP) is a series of workshops offered by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin. The program guides participants through all facets of the electric utility industry, including the many changes occurring around the nation.

MIP participants go through three 10-day sessions designed to challenge and educate through innovative management techniques. Participants leave with a better understanding of what members want and how to ensure they get it.

The program also helps the cooperative analyze other business ventures it may want to enter, as well as enhancing the core organization. For more information, visit www.sec.coop.
