Who Represents the LCP Membership

Lake Country Power is an electric cooperative and is governed by a policy-making board of nine directors. Each director serves a term of three years. These directors are elected by members voting through a balloted election within their respective district. Results of the elections are announced at the annual meeting.

The co-op’s board of directors is responsible for establishing Lake Country Power’s basic policies, goals and strategies. The board hires a manager to carry out these policies, strategies and the day-to-day operations of the cooperative.

For those members interested in serving on the Lake Country Power Board of Directors, the step-by-step election process and more information about Lake Country Power are included on this website.
