    Welcome to the new CLN Website!

    This website will be the heart of the CLN network – a 24/7 ‘virtual conference hallway’ where conversations and information can be found at any time. This is where CLN will be based, offering a platform which will grow in the directions that CLN members choose. Your participation will drive the growth and success of our network!

    CLN members will provide input to the CLN Board and Staff – you will define the direction we take together, shaping:
    – WHAT Topics are covered – these will come from you,
    – HOW Information will be shared: online, webinars, workshops, in-person events, podcasts, expanded member profiles, case studies, etc.
    – WHO will be part of the network and website discussions – CLN members (current and former REA Directors) are already set. Who else will be involved? There are many who would like to contribute to the CLN dialogue: Co-op and statewide CEOs, industry experts, consultants, NRECA staff, and/or…?

    The goal of CLN is to help Directors be as effective as possible, by sharing knowledge, experience and insights from other Directors (CLN members) as well as outside sources.

    Check out the website and get involved! This is YOUR network, and you can shape it to best meet your needs.

    This represents the ‘soft launch’ of the site, and site improvements will continue to occur in the coming months. But it’s definitely time for discussions and dialogue to begin now around popular topics. Please dive in! Check out the features of the new site, and begin to participate by: 1) commenting on existing discussions and Director Abby questions; 2) posting new discussion topics and Director Abby questions, which can be done Anonymously; 3) making suggestions or requests for content or features for the website or CLN overall.
