Wright-Hennepin's Board of Directors
Wright-Hennepin’s electric service territory is divided into nine districts, each of which is represented by a board member. The members from each district elect their own director to serve on Wright-Hennepin's board. Board directors meet monthly to provide financial and operational oversight, establish policy and rates, and represent members’ voices in the cooperative’s operations.
Directors serve three-year terms, and three districts are voted on every year at the cooperative’s Annual Meeting. Members are asked to come to the Annual Meeting and vote for a candidate who is located in their district.
Members may now file as director candidates
Members can now submit nominations to vie for a seat on the cooperative’s board of directors in Districts 2, 5 and 7. Members elected to these positions will begin their terms immediately following the 2017 Annual Meeting on April 20, 2017.
If you are unsure which district you live in, please refer to your mailing label on this month’s newsletter. The district number is shown on the first line of the label, just above your name. The “BD” stands for board district.
