2018 Board Elections
For 80 years, we’ve been owned and governed by members like you. As members, you have a say in our direction and a privilege to weigh in on the leadership who will represent you and your interests. This right is supported in the Corporation’s Bylaws and in the principles of our cooperative business structure.
Habersham EMC covers a service area mapped out into four districts. The nine-member board of directors are local residents and Habersham EMC members. These positions are elected on a rotating basis for three-year terms. Each elected board of director represents an approximate equal number of members. As a member of Habersham EMC, you may vote for directors each year.
This year, members will have the opportunity to elect directors from 2 of our 4 districts.
On February 27, 2018, the Habersham EMC Board will appoint a Nominating Committee to make nominations to fill the expiring terms of:
Central District East District
George Fry Jeff Ferguson
Nominations are made by the committee and also may be made by petition.
Members wishing to run for a board position must be a resident of the Central or East districts. If you do not know which HEMC district you reside in, contact the HEMC office and we will be happy to advise you.
The Nominating Committee will begin accepting candidate applications from March 1 through April 19, 2018, by the close of business at 5 p.m. All applications received in the office by the April 19 deadline will be presented to the Nominating Committee.
The Nominating Committee will meet April 26, 2018 to make nominations.
Applications by petition will be accepted from March 1 through May 10, 2018, by the close of business at 5 p.m.
