Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting policies and making decisions. The elected representatives, a board of directors, are accountable to the membership. REC's board of directors is elected at the Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is a forum in which REC members can exercise the democratic principle and be involved in the decision-making process.
Members may participate in the election process in-person or by proxy. Proxy designation cards will be mailed in July, and will also be available online beginning July 1.
