Benton REA will host three free webinars in November about its youth programs and residential energy-efficiency programs.

“We want to let our members know about these great member benefits, but we know not everyone has time to attend a class”, says Troy Berglund, manager of community development and member relations. “By attending a webinar, you don’t have to leave your home or office.”

If you don’t have time to attend one of our live webinars, register and Benton REA will send you a recording of the webinar you can watch anytime. Each webinar will last about a half hour.
