2019 Director Elections
Members of Sawnee EMC have the unique right and privilege to determine who represents them in the affairs of the Cooperative as members of its Board of Directors. This right is supported in the Corporation’s Bylaws and in the principles of our cooperative business structure.
Sawnee EMC has nine (9) members of its Board of Directors, one (1) from each directorate geographical district that exists throughout Sawnee’s service area, of which three (3) are up for consideration each year.
