Kankakee Valley REMC is not owned by far-away investorws or an appointed board of directors. It is run by a democratically elected board that is given the privilege to serve its fellow co-op member-consumers, neighbors, and friends. If leading your co-op interests you, consider running for directorship in the 2023 election. 

At the member appreciation day/annual business meeting, taking place on June 15, 2023, we will be electing directors for District 4 and one of the at-large positions. To be eligible to run for directorship, member-consumers must reside in a township within one of the districts up for election. In addition, director candidates are required to meet certain qualifications. Director qualifications are available by contacting the KV REMC office. 

The following townships are included in each district up for election in 2023:

District 4: Davis, Center, Oregon, Washington and North Bend townships in Starke County and Union and West townships in Marshall County.

The At-Large Position: Any area served by Kankakee Valley REMC.

Interested member-consumers will be required to attend a directorship meeting in late March, complete a petition requiring signatures from 15 member-consumers and consent to a background check. Director information packets will be available Jan. 9, 2023 online at or by calling the KV REMC office. Nominations for director positions will not be accepted at the annual meeting. Elected directors will each serve a three-year term. 

If playing a significant role in leading your cooperative interests you, consider running in the 2023 board of director election.
