Somerset County Director Earns Valuable Accreditation
Craig Mathies earned the Credentialed Cooperative Director Certification.
Congratulations to Somerset County Director Craig N. Mathies Sr., for earning his Credentialed Cooperative Director Certificate. Members of the Choptank Electric Board of Directors are required to obtain this accreditation within three years of joining the Board.
Mathies had to complete five courses designed to teach essential knowledge and the skills deemed essential for cooperative directors by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
“Craig hit the ground running since day one, and this accreditation was just the next step on his journey to serve our membership according to the highest co-op standards,” said Jeff Rathell, Chairman of Choptank Electric’s Board of Directors and Talbot County Director.
Following the retirement of Carl Widdowson in 2019, Mathies was appointed to the Choptank Electric Board of Directors to represent Somerset County, and was elected by the membership in 2020.
