The Northcentral Electric Cooperative Annual Meeting of the Members will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, in the Northcentral Electric auditorium. Besides summarizing the work of the past year and highlighting future projects, the major business task at the Annual Meeting is the election of three members of the Board of Directors.
This year, board members are to be elected to serve a term of 3 years from District 1, District 4, and District 8 of our service area. More detailed descriptions of each district can be found in Section 4.02 of the bylaws, under the "Cooperative" section of Northcentral's website at northcentralelectric.com.
Current board members representing these districts are Pat Woods of District 1, Tony Taylor of District 4, and Ricky Jones of District 8.
Nominations to the Board of Directors, whether incumbent or new candidate, will be made by the membership. Any twenty-five (25) or more members from the district from which a director is to be elected shall make a nomination by signing a nomination form with the nominee's name and district stated on the form. Nomination forms can be picked up from the receptionist's desk in the Northcentral Electric Cooperative Administrative Building. A list of the valid nominations will be posted at the Northcentral office.
The deadline for submission of nomination forms, as well as the schedule of meetings and deadlines for the Elections and Credentials Committee can be found under the "2023 Annual Meeting" link on the home page of northcentralelectric.com.
Members can vote either by proxy prior to the Annual Meeting or in person by ballot at the Annual Meeting. Proxies will be mailed to the membership and must be received in the Northcentral office no later than 2 p.m. on Monday, October 23, 2023. The Elections and Credentials Committee will review the proxies for validation beginning at 2 p.m. on Monday, October 23, 2023.
