Democratic Member Control
People just like you serve on the Grand Valley Power Board of Directors. Your electric cooperative is a democratic member controlled business. It doesn’t have stockholders, so the Board isn’t made up of the people who own the most shares and are looking for big returns on their investment. Your cooperative is governed by local people with your best interest and the cooperative’s best interest at heart. And they are elected by you!
One of the basic qualifications for serving on the board is to receive electric service from Grand Valley Power – so that means all directors are members. These people are also active community leaders representing the needs of their local constituents.
The cooperative’s bylaws and director elections pages contain exact details about director qualifications and the nomination/election process.
