Member Advisory Council application
The Chugach Electric Assoc. Bylaws provide that the Board of Directors (Board) may create and establish a Member Advisory Council (MAC) to advise the Board as an ad hoc committee (Article XIV, Advisory Council, Section 1, Member Advisory Council). When appointing the MAC, the Board is to select members from different sections of the service area of the Association so as to insure equitable representation (Art. XIV, Sec. 2).
The MAC is a means for members of the Association to advise the Board on topics requested by the Board in a scope of work and to otherwise serve as a sounding board for the Board in the evaluation of issues which affect the members (Board Policy 601). The Policy provides that the Counsel is limited to a total of 15 members that meet certain qualifications referenced in the Bylaws and have an interest in serving as a Council member to advise the Board on those matters assigned to it and must be available to participate in scheduled Council meetings.
