Due to the unfortunate and unexpected passing of one of our directors, Heartland Rural Electric Cooperative is now accepting nominees to represent District 1 on the Board of Directors through a special appointment process.
The new District 1 director will be selected by the Board in May, and will serve until the 2022 annual meeting, in accordance with the bylaws. The director may then choose to pursue re-election through the normal process.
Candidates must be nominated from 25 consumer-members within the district they are seeking to represent. Additional details can be found in the director appointment packet available for download below or from any of the Heartland offices. District 1 is the northernmost district within Heartland's service area. (See the district map below.)
Successful directors are:
- Quick learners
- Open to new ideas
- Able to understand and engage consumer-members as expectations change
- Able to connect with fellow directors from different generations
- Able to analyze complex options to make sound decisions
Any qualifying consumer-members who are interested in representing their district on the Heartland Rural Electric Cooperative Board of Directors are invited to explore this opportunity by downloading the attached director packet. Please call us at 620-724-8251 if you have any questions.
