Lynn Moore, an energetic and experienced cooperative veteran, will be taking over the reins of Touchstone Energy as executive director on May 15. In this role, Lynn will lead Touchstone Energy to help our member cooperatives better engage and serve their member-owners.
“Lynn’s knowledge of the membership and strong relationships with cooperative leaders make her an ideal leader for Touchstone Energy and an excellent addition to NRECA’s leadership team,” said National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) CEO Jim Matheson.
“It has been a privilege to work in our cooperative network for nearly 18 years, and I am excited to lead the brand that provides invaluable national partnerships, business development initiatives and resources to help co-ops better engage and serve their members,” she said.
Lynn has collaborated with Touchstone Energy since 2010 – developing and facilitating Service Excellence and Road to Member Engagement educational programs. In her role, she has taught more than 30,000 co-op employees. She has also served as a facilitator for the Strategy Execution System, a strategic planning tool for electric cooperatives. Prior to founding her own employee development and training firm in Indianapolis, Lynn served as the director of member relations and development for Indiana’s Electric Cooperatives from 2000 to 2010.
Lynn was chosen as executive director for her knowledge of the cooperative program, her strong relationships with the membership and her strategic vision for Touchstone Energy. Lynn will have a residence in the Arlington, VA area, and some excellent facilitators will be carrying on her Service Excellence and Road to Member Engagement workshops.
“While we knew Lynn Moore had deep knowledge of the cooperative industry and passion for the program, we discovered that she also has a strong strategic vision for the future of Touchstone Energy,” said Roger Meader, CEO at Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative in Oregon and president of the Touchstone Energy board of directors.
Lynn will be taking the place of Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Chief Operating Officer Mary McLaury, who has served the electric cooperative movement with distinction for more than 35 years, and is retiring in mid-May.
