Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience

The Cooperative Youth Conference and Leadership Experience (CYCLE) is a statewide effort by the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives designed to bring together some of the brightest young leaders from across the state to learn about the Electric Utility Industry, the Missouri Electric Cooperatives and Missouri State Government. CYCLE is designed for high school Juniors. The Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives has received an award from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association recognizing the excellence of the program.

The 2017 CYCLE conference will take place July 12-14, 2017 at the Double Tree Hotel and Convention Center in Jefferson City, Missouri. Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative selects two area students to attend CYCLE, with lodging, meals and transportation provided by HOEC.
