It’s difficult to believe we are beginning a new year. Many of us are glad to see 2023 end and to be moving forward to a brighter future. I hope that everyone enjoys a healthy new year! It’s common practice to start off the new year with new opportunities and goals. This year, I encourage you to make a difference in your community. Board positions are available through your local cooperative. You must be an active member of Henry County REMC to apply. If you are unsure what district you reside in, visit our website or call your local HCREMC office.

Board seats up for election

Board seats 1, 4, and 9 are open for election in 2024. Brian Becker currently represents District One in Fall Creek Township in Henry County, Salem Township in Delaware County, and Union and Adams Township in Madison County. Scott Houser joined us in 2023 to fill a vacancy in District 4 and represents Stoney Creek, Prairie, and Jefferson Townships in Henry County, Union Township in Randolph County, and Monroe and Perry Townships in Delaware County. Curt Poore represents District 9. Poore serves Dudley Township in Henry County, Fairview, Harrison, and Posey Township in Fayette County, and Jackson and Washington Townships in Wayne County.

Special meeting for potential board candidates

A meeting will be held in the Henry County REMC Community Room on February 9, 2024, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for any members wishing to learn more about the election process or those interested in obtaining a director packet for submission. This meeting will highlight what it means to be an HCREMC board member and what is expected of you during your candidacy.
