BOARD OF DIRECTORS

One of the guiding principles of cooperatives is democratic member control. MEC is governed by a nine-member board of directors, comprised of co-op members who actively participate in establishing corporate policy and strategic direction. Directors are elected to three-year terms by the membership in their respective districts. Learn more about Director Duties and Responsibilities.
