The Votes Are In

Posted Nov 24th, 2021

For this year’s annual meeting, SAEC members approved a new mail-in voting process to make their voices heard from the comfort of home. The election was a success, with members casting their ballots by Oct. 26 for representatives of Districts 5, 6 and 7 on the board of trustees.

We’re excited to announce that the sitting trustees up for election in all three districts were re-elected by a two-thirds majority. Congratulations to Delaney Kervin in District 5, Douglas Green in District 6 and Tim Sanders in District 7. We look forward to their continued service to their community and the cooperative's members.
