Board of Directors
East River’s mission is to enhance the value of its members and we deliver on that promise through the guidance of our board of directors.
East River Electric is governed by a 22-person Board of Directors. The selection process for our board of directors starts with our member distribution cooperatives. The members of each distribution co-op elect a local board of directors. Then each local distribution cooperative board elects a director to the East River board to represent that local co-op.
Of East River’s 25 member systems, 21 are full-requirements members and four are supplemental requirements members. Each of our full-requirements members elects a director to the East River board. Our supplemental requirements members elect one director that collectively represents those four co-ops on East River’s board.
