Clark County REMC
Clark County REMC is a member-owned electric cooperative headquartered in Sellersburg, Indiana. As a cooperative, Clark County REMC follows seven core principles that are universal to cooperatives worldwide. Among those principles is one stressing education, training and information. Indiana Connection, a monthly magazine published especially for Indiana’s electric cooperative members, is one way the REMC informs and educates its members. Indiana Connection is available not only in a print format, but as an electronic publication for those who prefer getting their information on their electronic devices.

For many years, REMC directors were provided with lifetime health insurance benefits at Clark County REMC’s cost as part of the company’s policy. Several years ago, this policy was eliminated due to rising health care costs, and a desire by the board of directors to be wise stewards of the membership’s money.
