2020 Director Elections on the Horizon

Alger Delta will usher in the new decade by holding director elections in three of its nine Districts.  In 2020, Districts 5 (Gourley, LaBranche, Cornell); 7 (Stonington); and 8 (Isabella/Nahma) will hold elections to send a representative to the Board of Directors. Elections will be held via mail ballot over a thirty-day period beginning in April and concluding May 11. 

Members interested in running for the board can find the qualifications and responsibilities for the position on Alger Delta’s website.  To qualify as a candidate, you must be a member of the cooperative and take electric service in the District you seek to represent. You must be at least 18 years old; and must not be employed by, or have a financial interest in, a competing business.  You must complete and submit a nomination petition to be placed on the ballot.  Nomination petitions must be submitted by March 12. 

Directors participate in strategic planning, setting policy and direction, governance of the cooperative, and other duties relating to a non-profit corporation.
