Board of Directors Elections
St. Croix Electric Cooperative is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors - one director representing each of the nine districts within the Cooperative service area. Members (e.g. consumer-owners) have a direct voice in the operations of the Cooperative through the election of representatives to the Board of Directors. Each spring, a volunteer nominating committee approves a slate of director candidates to be elected by mail ballot. Director terms are staggered so that one-third of the nine director seats are elected each year. A director's role includes approving policies, long-range planning and providing the resources leading to the accomplishment of the Cooperative's vision for the future. Directors serve three-year terms with three seats on the Board up for election on an annual basis.The Board meets the first Monday of the month at the SCEC office in Hammond. Agendas are posted on the Co-op's website prior to each meeting.
On Tuesday, Feb. 26 the 2019 St. Croix Electric Cooperative Nominating Committee nominated the following slate of candidates to appear on ballots to be mailed the last week of March to members in districts 1, 4, 7 and 8:
District 1: Neil Plourde (incumbent)
