Annual Meetings and Board of Directors

As a member-owner of Big Country Electric Cooperative, you are an owner of a $61 million cooperative corporation. BCEC serves more than 13,000 meters. We have over 5,300 miles of line serving farms, homes, industries and schools with dependable electric service.

Each person receiving service from Big Country Electric Cooperative is encouraged to actively participate in the business of the cooperative by attending the Annual Meeting. Traditionally, the meeting is held in April. A meal is served and entertainment is provided before the business meeting begins. At the Annual Meeting, you will also hear reports of the progress and future plans of your cooperative from the President of the Board, Secretary/Treasurer of the Board and the General Manager.

Nine members serve on the BCEC Board of Directors. They are selected by and from the membership at the Annual Meeting. Each board member is elected to serve for a three-year term. Elections are staggered with grouped Districts 1, 2, & 3; 4, 5, & 6; and 7, 8, & 9.
