Lane Electric - A Touchstone Energy Cooperative


The term of office for one director in the Central District, one director in the McKenzie District, and one director in the Oakridge District, on Lane Electric’s board of directors will expire on May 30, 2017.

Lane Electric’s Nominating Committee is accepting applications from members who have an interest in their communities and feel a civic responsibility to their neighbors.  The nominating committee will develop a slate of candidates that will be presented to the members in an election in May.  Directors are elected to three-year terms and must live in the district in which they apply.  All three directors are seeking reelection.   Interested members may apply via the Position Filing process or the Petition Filing process.  Position packets can be downloaded from our web site. Petition packets must be picked up at Lane Electric’s office at 787 Bailey Hill Road, Eugene.

Because Lane Electric Cooperative is a corporation, directors have the same basic duties and responsibilities as a director or officer of any other public or private corporation during their three-year term. Primary duties will include setting policy, approving budgets, contract considerations, strategic planning, embracing technology, collaboration, being committed to learning, being fully engaged, and monitoring the operations of the Cooperative.

Lane Electric members interested in being considered as candidates by the nominating committee should contact Lane Electric at 541-484-1151 and ask for Brenda Everts.  Below is a link to the general information contained in a POSITION FILING PACKET.  To view and print the 2017 Position Filing Packet contents, click on the link below.  Should you be interested in submitting a PETITION FILING PACKET, contact Lane Electric at the number provided above and ask for Brenda Everts.
