If you want to be in the room where decisions regarding the future of Noble REMC are made, now is the time to pick up and complete a petition for a seat on our board of directors.
The board is made up of nine individuals who represent their fellow members in his or her respective district. One of those could be you.
There are three districts up for election at this year’s Noble REMC Annual Meeting and Picnic, and they include:
District 4: Currently served by Bill Knox, this district covers the eastern portion of our service territory, including all the areas of DeKalb County served by the cooperative, part of Salem Township in Steuben County and part of Perry Township in Allen County.
District 5: Currently served by Bill Emmert, who will be retiring from the board in June, this district covers the west-central portion of our service territory, including Sparta and York townships in Noble County and part of Turkey Creek Township in Kosciusko County.
District 9: Currently served by Larry Ott, this district covers the south-central portion of our service territory and represents those in Green Township in Noble County.
To run for election, qualified members of Noble REMC, who live in Districts 4, 5 or 9, must file a petition with the signatures of 15 Noble REMC members supporting the candidacy.
The REMC will provide the petitions for election, as well as other board information. Completed petitions and biographical information must be returned to the cooperative no later than April 6.
Candidates will stand for election at the annual meeting, which will take place on Saturday, June 6, at Noble REMC headquarters.
