Board of Trustees and Management Team

Victory Electric is a locally owned and operated business, and the board of trustees is elected by the membership. Like you, they are cooperative members but with a special perspective.

Your board comprises members living throughout the Victory Electric service area, and they are local citizens with the best interests of members, the community and the cooperative always in mind. The cooperative territory is divided into districts, all of which are represented by a trustee. Trustees are elected at the annual meeting for three-year terms of office.

The business and affairs of the cooperative are directed by the board of trustees, which exercises the powers of the cooperative. The primary functions of an electric cooperative board are planning and policy oversight, establishing the long-term objectives of the cooperative, and providing resources to meet those objectives. The board works closely with the CEO and senior staff to review progress, ensure accountability, make strategic decisions, and stay current on an increasingly complex business.
