Board of Trustees

Consolidated Cooperative is locally owned, locally operated, and democratically controlled by the consumer-owners it serves. That means each account holder can vote for trustees who are also consumer-owners of the cooperative. Trustees govern the cooperative in the best interest of its members. Co-ops also operate on the “one member, one vote” principle – that means no matter how many accounts you have, you vote only once for your trustees. It’s another way co-ops operate differently from shareholder-owned utilities and businesses.

2024 Nominations & Elections

Your vote matters! Our 2024 elections impact Districts 7, 8, and 9. Nomination ballots will be mailed out and sent via email by February 26. Each household can select one qualified candidate from their district to nominate.

Nominations are due by March 11. Digital nominations will close at 4 p.m. local time that day, and mail-in nominations must be postmarked on or before March 11 to count.

An elected body that serves on behalf of all members

The board is responsible for establishing policies, seeing initiatives through and approving items like work plans, the financial budget, and electric rates.

Trustees ensure that the cooperative operates with the established principles on which it was built, and they maintain its strategic direction of nonprofit operation and cost-of-service-based rates.

Consolidated Cooperative’s board of trustees is composed of nine members, each of whom represents one district, or segment of the service area. If you are not sure what district you are a member of click here to view the district service map.
