Governance/Board of Directors
Whitewater Valley REMC is governed by a board of nine directors elected by and from the cooperative’s membership. The directors are responsible for establishing basic business policies, employ the President/CEO and work to carry out strategic planning. Directors are elected to three-year terms.
A director represents all members of Whitewater Valley REMC, not just the geographic region in which he or she resides.
Director positions total no more than three per district and are elected on a rotating basis of one director per district per year.
