In August, Jonathan and Angel Stewart of Jones County represented Tri-County EMC at the Cooperative Couples Conference in Hiawassee, Georgia. During the conference, the Stewarts networked with cooperative leaders from Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. They learned about the economic and service benefits of cooperatives and how coops differ from other corporations. They were also able to exchange ideas with other couples from around the state.

“I’ve worked with Tri-County EMC for many years, so I was familiar with electric co-ops but not others,”  said Jonathan Stewart. “I really enjoyed meeting with members of cooperatives outside of the electric cooperative realm.  While they all have their differences, it’s easy to see that all the co-ops are based on the same principles.”

The Cooperative Couples Conference is held each July. To learn more about the Cooperative Couples Conference, visit
