Board of Trustees
Cullman Electric is no ordinary corporation…it’s a cooperative. That means the people who buy their power from us are more than our customers…they are members-owners in the cooperative and each has a vote and a voice.
Our members have the power to influence the direction of our utility by electing members to a board of trustees. Nine board members represent the different districts served by Cullman Electric. Elections are held annually during the fall. Ballots are mailed to each cooperative member and final voting is held at our Annual Meeting.
Being a cooperative board member is by no means a full-time job, but it does require a commitment to serve our communities. A board member's term is for three years. Those elected spend their time learning as much as they can about the complicated electricity industry and then applying that knowledge toward improving the cooperative service area. The board meets monthly, working together to set policy and to make the financial decisions that will strengthen the cooperative for the greatest good of our members.
