Director Election Information (Districts 2, 5 and 7)

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.

Due to the postponement of the annual meeting, WH members can still submit nominations to vie for a seat on the cooperative’s board of directors in Districts 2, 5 and 7. Elections will take place at a future meeting.

Members in these districts who would like to compete in the election need to file a director nominee application form by August 19, 2020.

Mail in the form along with a resume to:
Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association
Attn: Dale Jans, Secretary/Treasurer
P.O. Box 330
Rockford, MN 55373
