The communications department is responsible for managing publications, media relations, digital communications, and other related functions for IAEC, in addition to providing support to member co-ops. We publish a monthly consumer magazine, Living with Energy in Iowa, which is mailed to over 50,000 electric cooperative households in Iowa. Additionally, we publish an annual report in December and an annual IAEC membership directory which is distributed to our member co-ops every January.
