Board of Trustees

Lincoln Electric Cooperative's (LEC) 10-person Board of Trustees is elected by the members from the general membership of LEC. Each one brings a unique set of skills and knowledge to the Board. Collectively, they are responsible for establishing, reviewing, and revising corporate policies to ensure that LEC continues to keep service to the membership foremost in mind, while maintaining a stable, yet competitive, position in the industry.

The members of the Board of Trustees for LEC know about the need to stay involved with our communities. They know the necessity of running LEC in a responsible fashion. They know that the members come first. How do they know? Because they are LEC members who live and work right here in LEC's service territory and they are dedicated to making life a little better for us all.

LEC's service area is divided into two districts, each of which has at least one representative on the board. Board members serve three-year terms with three or four trustees elected at each Annual Meeting.
