In adherence with Dakota Electric’s bylaws and policies, an annual election is held where any eligible member may seek election to the board of directors in the district in which they reside. Members that were interested in seeking election for a director seat applied in early December of 2022. The completed applications were reviewed for eligibility and sent to the Nominating Committee for interviews.
On Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023, the Nominating Committee conducted interviews and recommend the following candidates to be placed on the 2023 election ballot.
Dakota Electric requested member volunteers to help be a part of our annual election process by serving on the Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee serves as an integral part of our annual election process by interviewing director candidate applicants and helping to determine those qualified to be placed on the election ballot for 2023.
All requests to serve were received on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022. The 2023 Nominating Committee interviewed board candidates on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023.
Committee appointments were selected at random to ensure two assignments and one alternate to represent each district. All members were notified of the outcome in early January 2023. Those who serve on the Nominating Committee receive a stipend for their time.
