Board Nominations Open for Districts 4, 5 and 6


If you are interested in becoming a director nominee, please contact a nominating committee delegate or alternate. All candidates selected should be qualified by the nominating committee person prior to the meeting to ensure that if elected, he/she could serve in the capacity of director for a period of three years. Each candidate must be a Member of the cooperative and a bona fide resident of the district having director elections.

There may be situations where the spouse of a Member wishes to become a director nominee. In accordance with the bylaws of the cooperative, a spouse is not automatically a Member unless the membership is a joint membership with both spouse's signatures on file. If you are uncertain about being a qualified director nominee, please contact the office at (218) 743-3131 and we will check our records. A copy of the Cooperative's Bylaws regarding Qualifications for Eligibility to serve on the Board of Directors is available from any nominating committee person or at the Cooperative Headquarters in Bigfork.

The candidates selected by the nominating committee for Districts 4, 5 or 6 will be placed on the ballot and voted on by the members within that district. The annual meeting is currently scheduled for Thursday, June 18, 2020 at the Fairgrounds in Northome beginning with dinner at 5 p.m and meeting at 6:30 p.m. Watch the WATTS News for further information.
