Adams Electric Election & Credentials Committee
The Credentials & Election Committee is made up of 12 member volunteers, serving one-year terms, who oversee the election process. One member
from each of the nine director zones is selected for the committee annually.
A second committee member is also selected from the three zones where there is an open board seat.
The Election Committee serves as a nominating committee if no petition is received from a zone with an open seat.
Committee members fulfill their responsibilities by:
• Attending an orientation meeting and ballot certification meeting.
• Attending a member meeting, where a report of the committees’ activities is shared with the general membership.
• Attending the annual meeting, to collect and tally ballots cast in person, and announce the winners of the election.
• If an election is contested, an optional candidates’ orientation meeting may also be attended by the committee members.
Members of the committee are reimbursed round-trip mileage and receive a $50 stipend per meeting attended.
