2020 Board of Directors Election

Together, we can lead the responsible transition to a clean energy future


HCE is pleased to announce that the election to fill positions on the Board of Directors has concluded

Board service overview

It is important to review HCE’s Bylaws and the corporate policy regarding Voting and Elections prior to applying. Both documents can be found in our bylaws. Our bylaws can be found at holycross.com/bylaws/ and our policies are located at holycross.com/policies/. The following is an overview of board member qualifications, time commitments, responsibilities and compensation. The overview can also be viewed or downloaded via PDF.

Candidates should refrain from using Holy Cross Energy’s logo in campaign materials to avoid any confusion amongst our membership.  The Holy Cross Energy staff and Board do not make endorsements of specific candidates during the membership election process.

This general overview only covers the high points of some of the components of being a Director of Holy Cross Energy.  Should you have any questions, please contact Jenna Weatherred at 970-947-5470 for more information.

How to run for a board seat

Get 15 member signatures electronically

Complete the Self Nomination Form below. HCE will create a webpage with an online petition for HCE members, who reside in your territory, to sign in support of your nomination. A link to your online petition page will be emailed to you within 2 business days after you complete the Self Nomination Form below. You can then email the provided link to other members living in your district and ask for their support by signing your online petition.

Verify your 15 signatures

Once you have collected your signatures, please email Jenna Weatherred at jweatherred@holycross.com. She will then verify your collected signatures to make sure that you have 15 members’ signatures. It is a good idea to do this before the deadline so that you can collect more signatures if needed.
If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to call Jenna directly at 970.947.5470.

Deadline to submit petition signatures

Petition signatures must be submitted and verified by April 10, 2020.
We will send additional documentation for you to sign, including an authorization for a background check, and certification for compliance (verifying your qualifications to run for director)

Campaign and vote

HCE members elect their board of directors by secret ballot at the Annual Meeting of Members held each summer or by mail in vote. Board members are elected from the membership, by the membership. The next Annual Meeting will be held on June 3, 2020.
