Tricounty Electric Cooperative’s service area is divided into seven board districts, each with a member-elected representative who sits on the cooperative’s board of trustees. A nominating committee selects candidates for the position of trustee from cooperative members residing in the district up for election who have expressed an interest in serving on the board. The entire membership votes on candidates at the annual meeting.
The seven-member board meets at the cooperative’s headquarters, normally on the last Wednesday of each month. They are responsible for cooperative policies, rates and objectives and regularly review the cooperative’s operating performance. As representatives of the rural community, they communicate the problems and needs of the membership.
