District Nominating Meetings

District Nominating Meetings were held:

Voting District 1 - February 20, 6 p.m. - Devine Community Center, 200 East Hondo Ave, Devine

Voting District 2 - February 19, 6 p.m. - Pearsall Public Library, 200 East Trinity Street, Pearsall

Members who attended the District Nominating Meeting for their voting district were entered for the chance to win a 32" flat screen television.

At these meetings, Medina EC is seeking members interested in a challenging position on the cooperative’s board of directors. Members wishing to run should plan to attend the District Nominating Meeting for their voting district. Even if you don't want to run, plan to attend your district meeting to have a voice in the next director candidate for your area. By attending the District Nominating Meeting and participating in selecting the board nominees, you are becoming part of the cooperative’s democratic process.

Since Medina EC is a cooperative, we are owned by our members. The cooperative is governed by a board of directors, who are elected by the members to represent their interests. The board is responsible for setting policies under which the cooperative operates and making decisions regarding the financial health and well-being of the organization. Each director is elected for a three-year term and may be re-elected for two more consecutive three-year terms. If you are unable to attend your District Nominating Meeting and want to run, you must be nominated by another member or use the petition process. Take a look at the requirements and learn how to make a nomination here.
