In the US and around the world, smog was becoming deadly and evidence was growing that pollution led to developmental delays in children. Biodiversity was in decline as a result of the heavy use of pesticides and other pollutants.

KM Consulting president Kim Mikkelsen brought power industry expertise and co-op experience to her April 3 meeting with BEC. She provided examples of techniques for performing financial assessments and suggestions for maintaining a healthy co-op long-term.

Mikkelson reported that she often points to BEC best practices when she teaches classes and consults with co-ops across the country. It was useful to discuss how to continue and improve those processes.
