Board of Trustees

The Swan’s Island Electric Cooperative is overseen by a nine-member elected Board. The Board meets monthly –usually on the first Thursday of each month– and meetings are open to all members. Each quarter, the Board and the Co-op manager attempt to conduct a community meeting to report to members on activities, projects, and happenings and to hear concerns and ideas from members. The Annual Meeting is normally conducted on the fourth Thursday of July each year. At each Annual Meeting three of the nine Board member seats are up for election/re-election.
