2017 VEC Board Elections

VEC is an electric cooperative that provides the opportunity for our members to serve on the Cooperative’s governing board.  There are 12 board members who serve rotating terms to represent the various portions of the VEC service area.  Each year three of these districts hold elections for those who are interested in representing their area on the VEC Board of Directors. This year (2017) Districts 3 – Hamilton County, District 4 – McMinn County, and District 7 – Roane and Loudon Counties will hold elections for their representative’s seat.  Any VEC member who meets the qualifications of the VEC Bylaws as an eligible candidate can run for the Board.  The VEC Bylaws can be accessed here.
