Consider running for Tipmont’s board of directors

Tipmont REMC holds an annual meeting each year with the primary purpose of electing board members who govern our cooperative. Being a member of this board is an important position. The board’s decisions impact service rates, rights-of-way, work plans and much more. This position holds significant responsibility and requires individuals who understand their community’s needs and serve the cooperative members’ best interest. Each director is elected to a three-year term.

District 4 is up for election in 2020.

Our 2020 Annual Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, July 25, at Wea Ridge Middle School. Up for election this year is District 4 which includes Wea, Randolph and Union townships. Please see the nearby district map for details.

Any Tipmont member in good standing and whose name is on the account is welcome to run for an open position on the board. Please call our office at 800-726-3953 to obtain an election application. Candidates must live within the district and are required to receive at least 25 signatures of current Tipmont members. The election application must be submitted 85 days prior to the annual meeting. For 2020, this date is Friday, May 1.

Please encourage your fellow Tipmont members to run for positions on the board. Then, make sure you attend our Annual Meeting in July and vote for those individuals you think will act in the best interest of our co-op community.

Get involved and call 800-726-3953 for more information on how to run for our board of directors.
