Notice of Director Vacancies
Elections for Board of Directors (Central & Oakridge Districts)
The term of office for one director in the Central District and one from the Oakridge District on Lane Electric’s Board of Directors will expire on May 24, 2021. The Nominating Committee’s application process is now complete and will be forwarding a strong slate of candidates that will be presented to the members in an election in May.
The Nominating Committee encourages members still interested in running for the Central or Oakridge Districts to participate via the Petition Filing Process (PDF).
Directors are elected to three-year terms and must live in the district in which they apply. The incumbent directors will be seeking re-election.
Because Lane Electric Cooperative is a corporation, the 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 include setting policy, approving budgets, contractual considerations, working with the General Manager, and monitoring the operations of the cooperative.
How to Run for Election
Interested members may still participate in the Board elections via the Petition Filing Process (PDF). Petitions must include 30 valid signatures and be received by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday March 25, 2021.
