Serve on the REMC Board of Directors

Give back to your community by serving on the REMC board of directors

Be a part of a dynamic organization by serving on the REMC board of directors.

Deadline for petition is 4 p.m., Jan. 8.

If you’re wanting to be a part of a company that has a commitment to community and the people that live here, consider serving on the REMC board of directors. This is a great way to be part of an organization that cares about their neighbors and works to make a positive contribution in so many ways.

In 2018 REMC members will elect board members representing District 4 and District 5. District 4 represents Carr and Union townships in Clark County. District 5 represents Lafayette and New Albany townships in Floyd County.

Any eligible person who wishes to run for the board of directors (including an incumbent director) must be nominated by way of a written petition signed by a minimum of 15 members. The petition may only be signed by members of Clark County REMC.

The board of directors for Clark County REMC is the legal body which both the member and the government hold accountable for the actions of the organization. The REMC board of directors is not unlike other organizations or businesses. The men and women elected to serve are dedicated people who have the interests of all members of the organization at heart.

The board of directors has many functions and responsibilities

  • Managing the general business administration and affairs of the REMC;

  • Employing a general manager to direct the operation of the REMC;

  • Considering and adopting short and long range plans;

  • Establishing and maintaining legal entities;

  • Setting rate and fee schedules for service;

  • Reporting to the member-owners on the financial condition of the REMC;

  • Establishing controls that it uses in appraising the effectiveness of operations.

In order to be selected as a candidate, an individual must have been a member of the REMC for a 12-month period. Upon being nominated, these individuals are then voted on by the members.  Results of the voting will be announced at the annual meeting on April 7, 2018.

How to become a director candidate

Interested members may become director candidates by submitting a petition signed by 15 members. The nominating petition and accompanying guidelines must be obtained from the co-op office.  The completed petition must be submitted to the REMC by 4 p.m. on January 8, 2018.

About the Board of Directors

If you receive electric service from the REMC you are a member. The privilege of being a member includes being an owner of the company. The fact that we are owned by our members, instead of stockholders, is what makes us a cooperative. We believe that being locally owned and controlled is a better way of doing business.

Your organization is different than an investor-owned company. Because you are a member and regardless of your financial status, you have a voice in the way this company is run. You have the opportunity to elect another REMC member to serve on the board of directors. The board of directors is the legal body which both the member and the government hold accountable for the actions of the organization.

The seven member board represents one of the seven districts located in five counties within the territory served by the REMC. The men and women elected to serve are dedicated people who have the interests of all members and the organization at heart.

Find out which district you live in and which director represents you. If you are unsure, please call our office and we will be happy to help. The REMC is your organization. Be proud of it and support it!
