Annual Meeting Updates

Three Chugach members are running for two seats on the cooperative’s board of directors in this year’s election. Election results will be announced at the May 19 annual meeting at the Dena’ina Civic & Convention Center.

Chugach is a utility organized as a member-owned cooperative. The organization is governed by a seven-member board elected by and from the membership. The candidates in the 2016 election are Bruce Dougherty, Susan Reeves and Ron Stafford.

Dougherty is a retired Health Programs Manager. Reeves is an attorney and the managing member of Reeves Amodio LLC., and Stafford is a self-employed consultant.

The two candidates receiving the most votes will serve four-year terms.

Members will also vote on two proposed bylaw amendments. The first would clarify the duration of the term for a director appointed to fill a board vacancy and the second reconciles a provision of health insurance to comply with federal law.

The board set April 5 as the record date for voting in this year’s election. Members have five ways to vote: using the Internet, telephone, mail service, secure drop box, or in-person at the meeting. Election materials will be sent by April 18. Members have until noon on Monday, May 16 to return a paper ballot by mail or drop box, or until noon on Thursday, May 19 to vote via the Internet or telephonically.

In-person voting will be allowed at the cooperative’s annual meeting May 19 for members who haven’t yet cast a ballot. Registration opens at 6:00 p.m. and the meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
