Per Article IV, Section 4.02 of the Cooperative's Code of Regulations, the qualifications for serving as a North Central Electric Trustee are: 

1) The person must be a North Central Electric member and receiving service from the cooperative at their primary residential abode within the particular district he/she is to represent.
2) A "member" includes the husband or wife of the person in whose name the membership is recorded. Either one, but not both, may be elected a trustee, provided that neither one shall be eligible to become or remain a trustee unless both shall meet all of the qualifications for serving as a trustee.
3) Neither the person, nor his or her spouse, may in any way be employed by or financially interested in a competing enterprise, or a business selling electric energy or supplies to the cooperative, or a business primarily engaged in selling electrical or plumbing appliances, fixtures or supplies to the members.
4) Neither the person, nor his or her spouse, may currently be nor previously have been an employee of the cooperative or any of its subsidiaries for five (5) years prior to being elected to the Board of Trustees. In addition, they cannot be a close relative of an incumbent trustee or of an employee of the cooperative.
5) The person must be at least 18-years-old and have received electric service from the cooperative for at least one (1) year prior to being elected to the Board of Trustees.
According to the Cooperative’s Code of Regulations, any member residing in the district may seek election to the Board of Trustees. If more than two members are nominated for the position of trustee, a district-wide election will be conducted by mail and the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes shall be declared the official candidates. No more than two candidates can appear on the annual meeting ballot. The district trustee candidates seeking election to the Board of Trustees will be chosen by the entire membership through an election conducted by mail and/or electronic ballot. If all three district trustee elections have unopposed candidates, the code of regulations states the cooperative does not have to go to the expense of conducting an election and the candidates would be considered elected without a formal election. The winners will be announced at the annual meeting June 11, 2019, at the Seneca County Fairgrounds.  
 
Petitions can be obtained at the co-op office, 350 Stump Pike Road, Attica, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling the cooperative. The candidate packet including petitions can be mailed to prospective candidates, if necessary.
