Board of Directors

Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative, Inc. is a non-profit corporation, owned and governed by our members – the people we serve. Members of our board of directors, elected by you at the annual membership meeting, guide our operations. The board members are elected to represent your interest. They establish policy, set rates and provide careful oversight of the operations and management of the cooperative. When appropriate, they also bring forward suggested changes to the cooperative's bylaws and articles of incorporation for a vote of the membership.

Board members achieving the Credentialed Cooperative Director (CCD) status are so noted. The CCD curriculum consists of five courses designed to provide the minimum knowledge and skills required of cooperative directors: Director Duties and Liabilities, Understanding the Electric Business, Board Roles and Relationships, Strategic Planning and Financial Decision Making. Directors have several opportunities to attend courses, including NRECA's pre-annual meeting, pre-annual directors' conference, summer schools, pre-regional meeting, statewide association sponsored programs, and on-site training. The CCD is earned by attending all five required courses and successfully completing a learning assessment for each.
