One of the most important parts of Heartland REMC’s Annual Meeting will be the election of directors to serve a three-year term on the board. This year, there are elections for five board districts – including districts 3, 6, 32, 33 and 34.
As with other electric co-ops, Heartland REMC members have the right to choose board members who in turn are charged with making major decisions about the direction of the co-op.
Under the co-op’s bylaws, each director is responsible to appoint one member of the election committee from their respective district. The election committee met April 19, 2022, to review and approve the petitions of candidates seeking election to the board.
The nominating committee reviewed and verified each candidate’s petition. Five petitions were approved. The candidates are:
Members registered at the annual meeting will vote for the director candidate of their choice. Directors elected at the annual meeting will guide the cooperative for the next three years.
