2020 candidates are invited to a Trustee Orientation Workshop to be scheduled based upon interest. “The workshop is designed to provide all interested members running for election with an overview of rural electric cooperatives, Beartooth Electric and the board’s roles and responsibilities as outlined in the BEC amended bylaws and board policies,” stated Julie Lindgren, Board President. “We extend an open invitation to all interested members to join us for this informative event.” 

BEC’s seven-member board represents all walks of life and resides in communities and neighborhoods throughout the BEC service territory. Since 1938, BEC employees, guided by the board of trustees, have made a supreme effort to balance fiscal responsibility with the goal of improving the lives of those whom they serve.
