Northeastern's service area is divided into nine districts. Members choose representatives to serve on the board of directors. At the cooperative's annual meeting, three district director positions are filled each year. The board is the legal body that the member and the government hold accountable for the organization's actions.
Why are only three districts up for election? Three of the nine board of directors' positions are elected each year for new three-year terms. Each term's beginning and end dates are staggered to eliminate the potential of having too many brand new board members at one time. This helps maintain a healthy duality of experience and fresh ideas.
This year, Districts 5, 6, and 7 are up for election.
