As an electric cooperative, OPALCO holds elections each year for its Board of Directors. The Elections and Governance Committee (EGC) helps shape the board by participating in selecting qualified nominees for the election each year.
Each year the EGC:
- Identifies and cultivates qualified candidates for Board elections
- Interviews Candidate Applicants
- Provides a slate of Candidate Applicants for review by General Counsel
- Announces election results at the Annual Meeting
- From time to time, as directed by Staff, reviews elections and governance policies
It is the duty of the Board of Directors to appoint EGC members from each of the residency districts approved for the election of the San Juan County Council in San Juan County, Washington. EGC members should be members of OPALCO.
