REC’s communications team receives national recognition
Rappahannock Electric Cooperative’s (REC) Communications and Public Relations Department recently received national recognition for its communication efforts from the Cooperative Communicators Association (CCA).
REC was presented with two first place awards for projects related to the co-op’s involvement in the NRECA International’s Project Bolivia. Ryan White, digital media specialist, won first place for the Project Bolivia video he produced. The team won first place for their use of social media in creating the Project Bolivia Facebook Blog that kept family, friends and the community-at-large updated while the crew was working in Bolivia.
The team also won second place in advertising for the #WeAreREC community ad.
“REC’s Communications and Public Relations department is dedicated to keeping member-owners informed and engaged with our Cooperative,” said Casey Hollins, director of communications and public relations, in a news release. “Member feedback shows that our member-owners recognize and appreciate our communication efforts. We work hard to ensure that our messages are clear and effective, and that we go beyond our member-owners’ expectations.”
