2023 Nominating Committee

The grassroots participation in nominating and electing directors is one of the most important powers that you, the member-owners of Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative (TWEC), have in order to guide the decisions of your cooperative. 

Part of this participation involves the Nominating Committee, which is made up of between 5 and 11 members who are selected so that the geographical territory is well represented. This committee prepares a list of nominations for the next election of TWEC’s Board of Directors. Members may contact the committee if they are interested in being a director. The committee may also recruit members to run in the election.

This year, the 3-year terms of Gene Kern, Kristine Spadgenske, and Dale Adams will expire at the Annual Meeting on April 18th, 2023. Election ballots will be mailed to all members in March, along with the opportunity to vote electronically. Members may also vote at the TWEC Annual Meeting. 

The 2023 Nominating Committee is scheduled to meet on January 25th, 2023 to make selections for the 2023 director elections. Any member interested in becoming a director candidate may contact a member of the Nominating Committee listed to the right.

Members interested in becoming a director candidate may also contact the Cooperative office at (218) 631-3120 or (800) 321-8932 or at kvandeventer@toddwadena.coop.
