2021 Board of Directors Election

We are a private member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative managed by a nine-person Board of Directors. As a private company, we conduct our elections with voting procedures much like other companies who elect directors to their boards. Members will elect three representatives for three-year terms in the spring.

Please contact Customer Service if you are not sure we have your correct mailing address on file, especially if you use paperless billing, so we can ensure you receive your ballot.

We encourage all members to vote. Your vote is your voice.

Together, we are BSU.
