Join the Trico Board in 2024
November 2, 2023
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, around the time of 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.
This year, Trico is accepting nomination petitions for District 1 (Dove Mountain, Marana), District 2 (Marana, Avra Valley) and District 5 (Three Points, Altar Valley, Arivaca, Sasabe, Green Valley). See the box at right for more information.
