One of the many benefits of Trico is that it is owned and governed by you, our Members. Our Board of Directors are Trico Members who have been elected to govern and direct the affairs of the Cooperative. As a Trico Member, you too are eligible to run for a seat on the Board and become an advocate for both Trico and your community.
Directors are nominated and elected by you, our Trico Members. Elections are held once a year, during our Annual Meeting usually held in April. Directors serve a three‐year term and can run for re‐election. Each year, two or three Board positions come up for election.
