Director Petitions Available
GRAND JUNCTION, COLO. - (April 24, 2023) The election for the Grand Valley Power Board of Directors is approaching. While the election is held in August, the nominating procedure begins in April. Three director positions are up for election every year. Directors whose terms expire in 2023 are Joe Burtard, Don McClaskey and Janie VanWinkle.
To be eligible to become or remain a director, a person must receive electric service from GVP at the member’s primary residence. A director cannot be engaged in a competing enterprise or in other businesses involving a conflict of interest. Grand Valley Power’s bylaws provide in-depth information on director qualifications, terms, elections, meetings and officers.
Election procedures for the board of directors are governed by Colorado Statute. The cooperative’s bylaws and election policy comply with statutory requirements. These bylaws and policies can be found on GVP’s website at gvp.org/director-elections. Upon request, these written documents can be picked up at GVP’s headquarters or mailed to you.
Nominating petitions will be available for pickup beginning April 24 at the GVP office. Petitions must be signed and returned no later than by 5 p.m. on June 2.
If no more than three petitions are returned to fill the three positions that are open for this year’s election, there will be no mail ballot and the election of directors will take place at GVP’s annual meeting to be held on Thursday, August 3, 2023, at Colorado Mesa University’s Meyer Ballroom.
More details on the election process are on GVP’s website at gvp.org/bylaws.
