Because we’re a cooperative, that means our members are owners. And therefore, they are able to help guide the association by serving on our board of directors or the nominating committee. The nominating committee helps identify qualified and willing candidates to run for election to the board of directors the following year. This year’s voting process took place at our annual stockholders’ meetings in April or by mail in ballot. The election results are:
Board of Directors (4 year term of office)
Central Maryland Election Region: Ralph L. Robertson, Jr.
Chesapeake Election Region: Douglas D. Scott
Delaware Election Region: Fred N. West
Keystone Election Region: Brian L. Boyd
There were no director positions open in the Marva or Valley Election Regions.
