Director Earns Gold Certificate
Congratulations to Director John J. Burke Jr. for earning his Director Gold Certificate.
Cecil County Director and Board Vice Chairman John J. Burke Jr. earned his Director Gold Certificate this past September. The certificate was issued by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and presented to Burke during the October Board meeting.
The Director Gold credential recognizes directors committed to continuing their education beyond NRECA’s Credentialed Cooperative Director Certificate (CCD) and Board Leadership Certificate (BLC) plus three additional credits from the BLC courses. The Gold credential also signifies a director’s ongoing commitment to advancing their knowledge and performing their fiduciary duty to the best of their ability.
Burke was appointed to the Choptank Electric Cooperative Board of Directors in March 2010 to represent Cecil County. He was elected to the role of Board Secretary and Treasurer in April 2014. In April 2018, he was elected Vice-Chairman.
