Directorate Elections

One of the most important functions of the Annual Meeting is member-owners participating in the democratic process of electing members of our Board of Directors. The board is made up of members like you who live in our communities and work to make the best decisions for our cooperative.

Pursuant to Article V, Section 5.05 of the Bylaws of the Cooperative, Randolph EMC’s District Nominating Committees met on March 14, 2022, and selected the following candidates to represent their respective districts. No other members petitioned to add their names to the ballot for the 2022 Director Election. Therefore, each candidate is unopposed.

Pursuant to Article V, Section 5.03 of the Bylaws of the Cooperative, Randolph EMC dispensed with balloting for uncontested elections to spare the cooperative from incurring unnecessary expenses. The Credentials and Election Committee announced the results of the uncontested election at the 2022 Annual Meeting, and the members accepted the results by acclamation.
