Get involved! REMC seeking board candidates

Posted on Dec 21 2018 in Noble REMC

Noble REMC is led by members like you who listen and understand the community.

If you’ve been looking for a way to become more involved in the cooperative, and in turn, your community, now is the time to make your voice heard and pick up a petition to run for a seat on our board of directors.

At this year’s Noble REMC Annual Meeting and Picnic on June 1, members will have the opportunity to vote for individuals to represent them for the following districts:

District 1: Perry and Elkhart townships in Noble County and the part of Benton Township in Elkhart County served by the cooperative. Currently served by Robert Lortie.

District 2: Orange Township in Noble County and the part of Johnson Township in LaGrange County served by the cooperative. Currently served by Rick Robertson.

District 8: Washington and Noble townships in Noble County and the parts in Tippecanoe Township in Kosciusko County and Etna-Troy Township in Whitley County served by this cooperative. Currently served by Doug Burnworth.

The board is composed of nine individuals who represent the membership in his or her respective districts. Directors set policy and guide the future direction of the cooperative.

Qualified members of Noble REMC, who live in those districts up for election, may seek election by filing a petition with the signatures of 15 Noble REMC members supporting the candidacy.

Petitions for election and other board information will be provided by the REMC. Completed petitions and biographical information must be returned to the REMC no later than April 1.

Qualified candidates will stand for election, with voting upon registration, at the annual meeting and picnic on Saturday, June 1, at the Noble REMC headquarters.
