Shaped by the
Communities We Serve

SMECO has 15 directors. Every year, five directors are elected to three-year terms. SMECO members elect the men and women who serve on the Board of Directors.
The annual meeting ballot also includes proposed amendments to SMECO’s bylaws. Bylaws govern the way an electric cooperative does business.

SMECO Directors Are Part of the Community

  • SMECO’s Board of Directors meets every month to oversee the operations of the cooperative
  • Directors are SMECO members like you, and they come from all walks of life
  • Directors attend training sessions provided by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
    • The NRECA serves about 900 electric cooperatives nationwide
    • Through NRECA, electric cooperatives across the country have built a strong network of like-minded organizations that put their members first

Annual Members’ Meeting Prize Winners

Annual Meeting ballots were mailed on July 18, 2022. Every weekday from July 28 through August 10, we announced three lucky winners to receive a $50 credit on their SMECO electric bill. Names were drawn at random from the online ballots and the ballots signed and returned by mail for the Board of Directors’ election. Winners will see the credit listed as “Annual Meeting Prize” on their next bill.
Congratulations to our lucky winners!
