The Slope Electric board of directors will appoint the Nominating/Resolutions Committee at their January 20, 2017 board meeting.

The Slope Electric board of directors will appoint the Nominating/Resolutions Committee at their January 20, 2017 board meeting.  Each director selects a member from his or her respective county, and those directors who are up for election select an additional committee member from their county.  The committee will consist of not less than five nor more than 11 members. The committee member names are then published in Slope Electric’s local pages of the North Dakota Living Magazine.

The Nominating/Resolutions Committee meets twice. The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. to acquaint the committee with the responsibilities of a director of the cooperative, which will aid you in selecting qualified members to be nominated.  The cooperative will pay you a per diem, along with reimbursing you for mileage.  The second meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 15 at 9:00 a.m.  The purpose of this meeting will be to make the actual nominations for the election to be held at the cooperative’s annual meeting, and to approve resolutions to be printed in the annual meeting report.
