2022 Trustee Election

2022 Nominated Candidates

Qualified LCEC members are elected by members by ballot to serve on the Board of Trustees. Ballots are mailed in March and votes are tabulated prior to the Annual Meeting, typically held in April. Members are elected by the entire membership to represent the geographical area in which they reside. Three year terms are staggered in order to provide continuity on the board.

A nominating committee consisting of members selected from different LCEC geographical areas evaluates all applicants and makes a recommendation for inclusion on the election ballot. No Board member serves on the Committee. The Committee considers business experience; ability to interpret operating and financial reports; community leadership and sensitivity to LCEC member concerns and attitudes; integrity and lack of potential conflict of interest; ability to significantly contribute to Board discussions and decisions; ability to work well with other Trustees and staff; and special talents and skills useful in overseeing a multi-million dollar electric company.
