Board petitions still available
The annual meeting of members is just around the corner, and the January 23, 2018 deadline to submit petitions is fast approaching. If you are interested in running for election to the EnerStar Board of Directors, pick up your petition now!
Prior to receiving a petition, candidates should verify with cooperative personnel that they reside within an open Representative District. Petitions require the signatures of 15 EnerStar members who live in the candidate’s Voting District. All members signing petitions must have an original membership card on file and must be currently receiving electricity from the cooperative at their primary residence.
When petitions are submitted, candidates are encouraged to provide a short biographical sketch of 250 words or less and a digital photo to be included in the official notice to members. The biography will also be included in the March 2018 issue of this publication.
The role of director is a huge commitment – of time, energy and education – more than most members realize. The petition packet provides considerable detail about the role of a director. To receive a packet or for questions regarding the petition process, contact EnerStar’s Vicki Ewing at 800-635-4145 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
