WIN Energy REMC is a membership cooperative governed by a board of directors who represent the membership in their districts. Directors are elected to a three-year term by the members at the annual meeting of the cooperative. The directors are the member's voice in setting the cooperative policies, bylaws, and regulations.
The board of directors has spent many hours in meetings educating themselves on how they can make this cooperative a better organization. Each of the board members has received the status of being a certified credentialed cooperative director. To receive this status there are many hours of training and study involved on how a cooperative operates. It takes a unique individual to dedicate their time and effort to be an informed board member. Listed below are our current board members by district.
