Illinois Country Living
If you are a member of Egyptian Electric Cooperative, unless you have opted out, you receive a monthly magazine, called the Illinois Country Living (ICL), edited and published by our statewide association, Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives. The magazine covers rural issues, and provides commentaries from Illinois leaders, columns on safety, health, energy conservation, gardening, a calendar of events, and of course, the ever popular recipes from Illinois’ best country cooks. The magazine’s job is to help electric cooperatives communicate with their members, the consumers who own the local electric utility. They’ve been doing this for more than 74 years. Egyptian Electric is one of 19 Illinois electric cooperatives that provide Illinois Country Living magazine to their members, and is the largest circulation of any monthly publication here in downstate Illinois. In fact, they send out more than 190,000 magazines statewide each month, and just over 12,000 of those go to Egyptian Electric consumer-members!Online ICL Magazine
The center 4 pages of the magazine are exclusively reserved for Egyptian Electric, and published by our staff. We refer to it as our “center section” or “newsletter,” and is specific to our cooperative that includes topics such as official member news releases, Annual Meeting notices, office closing dates, information on energy efficiency, how to pay your bills, and even things such as employee milestones. Page 13 in the magazine is also given to Egyptian Electric and utilized most months for important cooperative information as well. As a NEW reader incentive we are awarding members with $10 bill credits, if their map number is found within the body of our center section and claimed by calling our office!
