In the 1940s after the cooperatives were formed to supply power for rural home and land owners, the statewide associations began to publish and distribute their magazines as a communications tool for members. As member/owners of the cooperative, readers influenced and contributed to the editorial direction and content. Articles range from energy saving tips and home improvement to gardening, recipes and all things in between that represent home, family and quality of life. History Matters
History Matters Today each cooperative maintains a customized edition just for its members providing local co-op news and community events. It’s no surprise that subscribers are so dedicated to reading their own monthly magazine. This dedication has created a unique bond of trust and loyalty that is unheard of in the magazine industry. MRI reports that 94% of our readers trust advertisements in our publications more than ads in other publications.
