How to become a board member


Ever thought about serving on the Capital Electric Board of Directors?

The nine members who make up the CEC board of directors set policies and make decisions that guide the cooperative into the future. In accordance with Article 4, Section 3 of the co-op bylaws, current members of CEC can have their names placed on the ballot to be voted upon for the open board positions in either of these two ways:

1) accepting a nomination by the CEC Nominating Committee or 

2) submitting a petition signed by at least 15 current members of the cooperative, not less than 30 days prior to the annual meeting. 


To be eligible to become a director, a person must:

1) be a member of the cooperative

2) reside in the district they are to represent and 3) not be employed by or financially interested in a competing enterprise or a business selling electric energy or supplies to the co-op or its members.
