Board of Directors

Karnes Electric Cooperative is a member-owned, democratic organization that is governed by a seven (7) member Board of Directors elected from the general membership.

Section 41.055 of the Public Utility Regulatory Act of 1999 (Texas Utilities Code) gives the board of directors the exclusive jurisdiction to set all terms of access, conditions, and rates applicable to services provided by the cooperative. The board also has the legal and fiduciary responsibility for setting policies appropriate for the efficient operation of the Cooperative. These items are administered through the General Manager of the Cooperative.

The Board of Directors meets monthly with the General Manager and reviews every aspect of the Cooperatives operations. The Board and the General Manager work closely together in planning, maintaining and executing board policies.

If you wish to address the Board of Directors, you must submit a written request to the Cooperative asking to be placed on the Boards agenda along with the purpose of your address.
