Wright-Hennepin's Board of Directors

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
