Becoming a Trico Board Member
One of the benefits of a Cooperative is that it is owned and governed by its Members. The Cooperative’s Board of Directors are Members of the Cooperative who are elected to govern and direct the business of the Cooperative.
As a Trico Member, you are eligible to run for the Board of Directors and become an advocate for the Cooperative and your community.
What are the responsibilities of the Board of Directors?
Trico’s Directors are responsible for protecting and managing the assets and business interests of the Cooperative for the benefit of its Members. They determine how the Cooperative’s financial and operating assets are used to fulfill the Cooperative’s mission. They set the Cooperative’s policies, strategic plans and budgets.
How are Directors elected and who elects them?
Directors are nominated and elected by the Members of the Cooperative. Elections are held once a year, during the Annual Meeting. There are two or three Board positions up for election each year. Directors are elected for a three-year term and can run for re-election.
The seats up for election at the April 4, 2020 annual meeting are District 3 (Three Points, Altar Valley) and District 6 (Vail, Corona de Tucson). Click here to learn more about becoming a Trico Board Member. Nomination petitions are due by January 19, 2020.
