Board of Directors
People just like you serve on the South Plains Electric Cooperative Board of Directors. Your electric Cooperative is a democratically-controlled business. It doesn’t have stockholders, so the board isn’t made up of the people who own the most shares and are looking for big returns on their investment. Your Cooperative is governed by local people with your best interest and the Cooperative’s best interest at heart. And they are elected by you, the member.
One of the basic qualifications for serving on the board is you have to receive electric service within the District up for election—so that means all directors are members. These people are also active, community leaders representing the needs of their local constituents. The Cooperative’s Bylaws contain exact details about director qualifications and the nomination/election process.
Elections are held annually and the first call for nominations is published in the May issue of Texas Co-op Power magazine. If you are interested in a board position and want more information, please call Dianne Hewett at (806) 775-7856 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
