Participate in Your Co-op’s Governance
It’s time to nominate potential directors.

Co-ops are self-governing entities led by members who actively engage in policy-making and decision processes. Both men and women serve as elected representatives on the cooperative board and are accountable to all members. Participation is crucial for the effectiveness of the Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op (PIE&G) as it operates on democratic principles.

Any qualified PIE&G member-owner is eligible to serve on the cooperative’s board of directors, with each term lasting three years. In 2024, four director positions will be open from Cheboygan, Montmorency, and Presque Isle.

Candidates must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in Article III, Section 2 of the PIE&G bylaws. Members interested in running for a director position should contact the cooperative’s office to understand the responsibilities involved. Board meetings typically occur on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 9:30 am.

To be considered for nomination, please submit a letter of interest by June 20 to the Nominating Committee, PIE&G PO BOX 308, Onaway, MI 49765. The committee will review all submissions and announce nominations in July. Further details about the Annual Meeting scheduled for November 1, 2024, in Posen will be shared soon.
