Health Issues Cause OPALCO Board Member to Step Down

OPALCO Board Member Glenna Hall has announced her resignation due to health issues. Hall represents District 1 (San Juan, Brown, Henry, Pearl and Spieden islands). The Board will appoint a new board member to fill the vacancy until Hall’s term is up in 2017, in accordance with our bylaws (Article III, Section 4).

“I want to take this opportunity to praise the Co-op, its members, staff, leadership team, and Board, and to thank the members for allowing me to be part of an organization with an important heritage and a brilliant future,” said Hall.  “I especially hold in esteem my fellow directors, who each have contributed tremendous knowledge and analysis, strongly held opinions of their own, and an ability to work together for the good of the members.”

Members from District 1 interested in filling this vacancy may submit a cover letter and brief resume to: Jim Lett, President, OPALCO Board of Directors, 183 Mt. Baker Rd., Eastsound WA 98245 or via email to bmadan@opalco.com. Please direct all questions to Bev Madan at 376-3549.  Candidates will be encouraged to attend the September board meeting and the board expects to make an appointment to fill the vacancy in October.

Board meetings are open to the Co-op membership. The September board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 23rd in the Eastsound OPALCO offices.
