Director Election Information

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.

In 2023, Director seats for districts 2, 5, and 7 are up for election. In 2024, districts 1, 3 and 9 will have director seats up for election.

WH members can now submit nominations to vie for a seat on the cooperative’s board of directors in Districts 2, 5, and 7. The board seat for District 7 will be open. Elections will take place at WH’s 2023 Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2023. Your board district (BD) number is shown on the second line of your newsletter's mailing address, just above your name. Contact member services if you need assistance finding your district number. Members in districts 2, 5, and 7 who would like to run in the election need to file a director nominee application form.

To apply, print, complete, sign, and submit the director nominee application by March 1, 2023.

Mail in the form along with a resume to: Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association Attn: Board Secretary Michael Tieva, P.O. Box 330, Rockford, MN 55373
