Employee Spotlight

Lauren Robinson

Director of Accounting and Finance | 10 Years 

"I work with all departments at AVECC to ensure we are financially successful. I manage a great team that is involved in many facets of the Cooperative, ranging from payroll to vendor payments, capital credit retirements to regulatory compliance, billing and accounting systems to plant accounting, and financial statement preparation.

My favorite part about working at AVECC is working with people who have a shared passion for seeing rural areas prosper. We’re investing in our rural communities daily and highlighting the GREAT things that are happening there."

You can learn more about Lauren in the "Getting to Know Lauren Robinson" episode of The Next Greatest Thing" where we talk about her position at AVECC, her love of baking, and a recent trip to Disney World.
