Dakota Electric Association is a member-owned and member-controlled electric distribution cooperative. The members elect one of their own to serve as a director on the cooperative board. These democratically-elected directors govern and direct the affairs of Dakota Electric, guide how the co-op’s money and assets are used to fulfill the cooperative’s mission, and represent their members’ interests and concerns as they develop policies that guide the cooperative’s operations and strategic direction.
Directors attend regional meetings, conferences and events to learn and make decisions on specific industry and governance issues such as risk management, ratemaking and policy development.
