North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives recently welcomed Susan Flythe and Richard Midgett as new leaders to the boards of the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation (NCEMC) and the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives (NCAEC).
Susan Flythe, executive vice president and general manager of Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative (CHEC), was elected to serve a two-year term as president of the board of directors for NCEMC. Flythe has been with CHEC since 2002 and previously served as manager of finance and administration. Flythe is the first female to serve as president of NCEMC.
NCEMC, the power supplier for North Carolina’s electric cooperatives, is one of the nation’s largest generation and transmission cooperatives and a leader in the application of innovative energy solutions. It is responsible for planning, developing, and operating a power supply system to provide affordable, reliable and environmentally responsible electricity to 25 of the state’s electric cooperatives.
Richard Midgett, president of CHEC’s board of directors, was elected to serve a one-year term as president of the board of directors for NCAEC. Midgett has served on CHEC’s board of directors for 28 years.
NCAEC is a statewide trade association owned by North Carolina’s 26 electric cooperatives that has worked since 1943 to promote training, safety, education, communications, and legislative advocacy on behalf of electric cooperative members and the public.
We congratulate Susan and Richard on their newly elected roles and thank them for their service to our state’s electric cooperatives and members.
