How to run for your board of directors
You may question how you can contribute to an electric cooperative board: “I don’t know anything about electricity!” We’re not looking for electrical expertise – we can teach you that.
We’re looking for members who are passionate and hardworking individuals, and will bring their experience and perspective to learn how to best serve their fellow co-op members.
In a routine year, there are three districts up for election, with applications available from January through March. (See the "detailed description of the districts" link above to see when your district is up for election.) Voting for the board of directors takes place at the annual meeting on the first Saturday in June each year.
To run for election, qualified members of Noble REMC, who live in the districts up for election, must file a petition with the signatures of 15 Noble REMC members supporting the candidacy.
We will provide the petitions for election, as well as other board information, and completed petitions and biographical information must be returned to the cooperative by the set deadline.
