Director Elections

Director elections take place at the Annual Meeting held during August. REC's Bylaws govern the election process and director qualifications are further defined in Board Policy.

Candidates for election to REC's Board of Directors must be an REC member-owner as defined under Article I of the REC Bylaws, and must also reside in the region they wish to represent as provided under Article IV of the REC Bylaws. Member-owners signing the nomination petition can be from any of the nine regions.

For further details on director qualifications and the nomination procedures, please review Article IV of REC's Bylaws. 
On Wednesday, Aug. 9, REC members exercised the Cooperative's democratic process as they elected candidates to the Board of Directors, received reports on REC's accomplishments and end-of-year financial status, and learned about REC's plans for continuing to provide reliable and affordable electricity.

REC's Annual Meeting was held virtually this year. Over 18,000 members participated in the virtual Annual Meeting by proxy to elect three directors to REC's board for three-year terms:

•    In Region IV, Sanford Reaves, Jr. was re-elected. This region covers the counties of Culpeper and Orange.
•    In Region V, Randy Thomas was re-elected. This region covers Spotsylvania County.
•    In Region IX, Eugene “Gene” L. Campbell, Jr. was re-elected. This region covers the counties of Essex, King and Queen and King William.
