For over 80 years, Connexus Energy has been owned and governed by members like you. The Connexus Energy Board of Directors is elected by the members to provide oversight of the electric cooperative. The board is governed by the cooperative’s bylaws, which are adopted by the membership. They establish rates, set the cooperative’s goals and strategic direction, provide financial oversight, and act as the policy-making body of Connexus Energy.
The cooperative’s director elections take place in conjunction with our annual meeting of the membership which is held in March or April each year. Watch for details at the end of each calendar year for dates and deadlines for the following year’s election. If you are interested in knowing more, see the candidate information pamphlet from our last election. Or you may contact our executive office at 763-323-2721.
To contact a director regarding board-related matters, email email@example.com.
In the last several months of 2020, your board has been reviewing, discussing, and taking action on many topics to continue to keep our cooperative strong and planning for our future. Below are some of those items. (For further details, the meeting minutes are also available in your member portal.)
