Tafanelli to Speak at Annual Meeting
Lane-Scott is honored to announce the Kansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. CEO Lee Tafanelli will be the guest speaker at our annual meeting on July 14, 2020.
Tafanelli joined Kansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. as chief executive officer effective May 1, 2020. He most recently served as the Kansas Adjutant General, responsible for three primary duties: ensuring the wartime readiness of over 7,000 soldiers and airmen of the Kansas Army and Air National Guard, coordinating the overall emergency preparedness for the state’s response to natural disasters and emergencies, and serving as the Homeland Security Advisor for the state of Kansas.
Tafanelli served in the Kansas House of Representatives from 2001-2005, when he took a leave from office to command the 891st Engineer Battalion in Iraq. After his deployment, he resumed his legislative post in 2006 where he served until January 2011, when he was appointed Kansas Adjutant General. During his time in the Kansas Legislature and as Adjutant General, Tafanelli developed a deep interest and focus on issues affecting rural Kansas.
Tafanelli received his commission from Pittsburg State University, Army Reserve Officer Training Corps, and holds a master’s degree in Environmental Planning and Management from Kansas State University and a master’s degree in Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College.
We invite you to come and listen to Tafanelli. He will speak during the business portion of the annual meeting at the Lane County Fairgrounds.
