Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative is a member owned utility governed and directed by a board of trustees. The geographical territory is divided into 8 districts, relatively equal in population, and members of each district elect a member to represent them as a trustee for a 3 year term without term limits. Each year following the filing period, should there be a need for an election, the cooperative will arrange a district meeting at a location in the district and voting will be held in person. CVEC has been blessed to have many great people willing to serve their constituents, the cooperative, and their communities over the last 7+ decades and we look forward to many great years to come.
