Delaware Electric Cooperative's board of directors is elected by the Co-op membership and elections take place every summer. During years when there are contested elections, members are able to vote for director candidates online, through the mail and in person at our annual meeting in August. Members are allowed to vote in various ways to make it as easy as possible for them to have a say in the governance of their Cooperative. The board is the governing body of the Co-op, representing our members’ interests. They hire and evaluate the performance of the Co-op's CEO, vote on rate changes, and perform other important tasks related to governance. Serving on our board is a significant time commitment, and directors attend board meetings, committee meetings, trainings, and other special events each year. Directors receive a stipend for the time they spend working on behalf of our members, but they are not eligible for any additional compensation or benefits. You can learn more about our 2023 director elections and annual meeting HERE.
