About the Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee consists of nine members selected by and from the members of the cooperative. The three districts for committee members are the same as director districts (North, Central and South).  


The bylaws of WWVREMC provide for a Nominating Committee as a standing committee for the REMC. Article IV, Section 5 outlines the role and responsibilities of the committee and its members.

  • The standing nominating committee will be comprised of nine (9) members who are elected for three (3) year terms. 
  • No employee, officer or member of the Board may be a member of the standing nominating committee.
  • The standing nominating committee shall meet at least sixty (60) days before the annual meeting of the members for the purpose of nominating at least two (2) candidates for each open director position, and at least two (2) candidates for the open standing nominating committee positions.
