The Slope Electric board of directors will appoint the Nominating/Resolutions Committee at their January 31, 2019 board meeting. Each director selects a member from his or her respective county, and those directors who are up for election select an additional committee member from their county. The committee will consist of not less than five nor more than 11 members. The committee member names are then published in Slope Electric’s local pages of the North Dakota Living Magazine.
The Nominating/Resolutions Committee meets twice. The first meeting will be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. to acquaint the committee with the responsibilities of a director of the cooperative, which will aid you in selecting qualified members to be nominated. The cooperative will pay you a per diem, along with reimbursing you for mileage for both meetings. The second meeting will be held on Thursday, March 28 at 8:00 a.m. The purpose of this meeting will be to make the actual nominations for the election to be held at the cooperative’s annual meeting, and to approve resolutions to be printed in the annual meeting report.
If you or someone you know is interested in serving on the Nominating/Resolutions Committee, please notify Lynn Klein in the office at 701-579-4191 or at email@example.com prior to January 31, 2019. To serve on the Nominating/Resolutions Committee, you must be an active member of Slope Electric and your name must be listed on the membership.
Three director’s terms will expire in 2019 – two directors from Bowman County and one director from Adams County. There is also a vacancy for a Hettinger County director, which will need to be filled.
Members can also be nominated to serve as director by filing a petition with 15 members’ signatures. Filing must be done 30 days prior to the annual meeting and posted at the office. Members may also be nominated to serve as director from the floor at the annual meeting. To serve on the Slope Electric board, you must be a resident receiving service from Slope Electric at your primary residence, and you must be a named member of the Cooperative.
