Kouba and Stapleton Complete MIP
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Sam Houston Electric Cooperative had two employees complete the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Management Internship Program.
Doug Kouba, P.E., Sam Houston EC engineering supervisor, and Keith Stapleton, chief communications officer, received their MIP certificate in early 2013.
MIP is an intensive six-week program held at the Fluno Center for Executive Education at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. It is divided into three, two-week units that focus on different management issues.
The program provides a comprehensive analysis of the functions and processes of management and emphasizes the practical applications of these factors.
“MIP is an incredible learning environment. For six weeks, experts from all segments of the electric cooperative industry share their knowledge with MIP participants,” said Keith Stapleton, Sam Houston EC chief communications officer. “I now have a much larger network of co-op peers and friends, and we are continuing to share information even after our graduation from MIP.”
MIP attendees also must present the results of a personal project that applies classroom experiences learned during the program to issues at the attendee’s co-op.
