Meet May's Breakfast Speaker, Bob Paulling of MCEC

This month's breakfast on Tuesday, May 14 and sponsored by Burr Forman McNair will include a keynote on a topic for which we need to call in an expert: electric cooperatives and Santee Cooper.

Who better to speak on this than a man who has President and CEO of Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative (MCEC) since 2013?

He currently serves as a board member of the Central Electric Power Cooperative; CarolinaConnect (Board Secretary), SC Power Team (Chairman), Cooperative Electric Energy Utility Supply, Line Equipment Sales and Electric Cooperatives of SC.

Paulling was instrumental in founding CarolinaConnect Cooperative in 2016, which provides high-speed internet service to members of MCEC and other cooperatives across the state.
