One of the major differences between being a member of an electric cooperative and a customer of a privately owned utility is that you have a voice in who serves as your representative.
As a cooperative member you have the ability to vote for the director who represents your area at the annual cooperative meeting.
Sullivan County Rural Electric Cooperative (REC) has 9 directors on its board who serve three year terms. Directors are responsible for hiring the CEO, approving budgets, policies, rates, financial plans and construction work plans.
