Directors - Members Serving Members

The cooperative's directors are EnerStar members, just like you. You and your fellow co-op members elect them to set policy and govern the co-op. Nine directors sit on the board, residing in and representing a specific district in the cooperative. Any EnerStar member can run for a directorship if they reside in the appropriate district. Elections are held before the Annual Meeting of Members.

EnerStar's service territory has three Voting Districts. Each Voting District has three Representative Districts. Elections are held annually for one representative district in each Voting District. Terms are three years. We are working on a digital map of the districts, but in the meantime, below is a district map and legal description of each district. Call our office at 800-635-4145 if it is unclear which district you reside in.

The EnerStar Board of Directors generally meets on the last Tuesday of each month
