About The Board

The BUECI board of directors is made up of nine members, elected on staggered, three-year terms. Elections for board of director positions are held at the member’s annual meeting, generally in April each year.

Some of the responsibilities of the board include:

  • setting strategy and policy for the organization
  • approving tariff rates
  • establishing utility rules and regulations (such as line extension policies)
  • accepting financial and operational reports, budgets, and forecasts
  • approving donation, scholarship, and sponsorship requests
  • hiring the general manager

Board members receive training to earn the designation of Credentialed Cooperative Directors (CCD) through the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). Board members also represent BUECI at annual state, regional, and national power association meetings.

Regular board meetings are generally held the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 7 p.m. in the second-floor conference room of the central office at 1295 Agvik Street, Barrow, Alaska.
