Candidates must be members in good standing and residents of District III, which includes the cooperative’s service area in Clay, Fayette, Effingham, Marion and Shelby counties.


Interested parties should email a cover letter, resume, and a completed board candidate questionnaire to Southwestern Electric CEO Bobby Williams by Monday, Nov. 5. The questionnaire is available here. For more information, contact Bobby Williams at (800) 637-8667 or send email to bobby.williams@sweci.com.
