Your Board of Directors – Elected to Represent and Serve the Member-Owners and Guide the Cooperative

The Cooperative's Board of Directors’ guide the affairs of the Cooperative.  All powers of this responsibility are held solely by the Board, except those that have been conferred upon or reserved for the member-owners or others by statute or by the Cooperative's Bylaws or Articles of Incorporation.  The Board is ultimately responsible for the performance of the Cooperative.  The Board delegates and holds the President and CEO responsible for day-to-day administration, operation, and managerial leadership of the Cooperative. Board meetings are held monthly, generally on the third Thursday of the month.  Although not open to the public, members are welcome to request to attend and address the Board if they desire.  Such requests should be directed to the President/CEO at least fifteen days in advance to allow for scheduling on the board meeting agenda.

Directors are elected to the board in accordance with the process outlined in the Bylaws, located here.  The board consists of seven directors with terms staggered so that two or three terms expire on an annual basis.  They serve three-year terms and may be re-elected.  There are three director service districts that have been established to ensure a broad-based geographical representation of the membership, but these districts are not for the purposes of representing or promoting special regional concerns.  All directors have a fundamental fiduciary duty, regardless of their district, to represent the best interests of the whole cooperative membership.  Voting for directors is system-wide with all members having the opportunity to vote in elections where there are multiple candidates, regardless of the district. Elections are done by mailed ballot, with the entire election process conducted and overseen by the certified public accounting firm of Campbell, Myers, and Rutledge in Glasgow.

Information pertaining to eligibility, nomination, and running for the board of directors is outlined in the Cooperative Bylaws. The following information was published in the Cooperative’s newsletter within the Kentucky Living monthly magazine, that outlines the time schedule for the current year’s director election process.

The annual meeting of Farmers Rural Electric Cooperative will be Thursday evening, July 7, at the Convention Center located at Cave City. Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., CDST.
The cooperative’s annual membership meeting will be held for the purpose of presenting reports on the previous year, announcing the results of the election of directors, and the transacting of such business as may properly come before the meeting.
An informative program has been planned for this occasion. You are cordially invited to attend.
In regard to the election of directors, please note the following:
1. Nominations for candidates by the Committee on Nominations will be posted in the lobby of the offices of the cooperative by May 6, 2022.
2. Also, directors may be nominated by petition. Such petition shall be filed at the cooperative during regular office hours, no later than 4:30 p.m., CDST, on May 13, 2022.
