North Arkansas Electric Cooperative members re-elected Jim Short to a six-year term on the NAEC Board of Directors.
Short, who lives in Salem, represents members in Fulton County. He ran unopposed and has been an NAEC director since 2013.
Survey & Ballot Systems of Minnesota conducted the election on NAEC’s behalf. Each member was mailed a ballot the first week of May, and ballots received by Survey & Ballot Systems by June 1 were considered valid.
Attorney Roger Morgan announced the election results during the 81st Annual Meeting at NAEC’s Salem office June 3. CEO Mel Coleman and co-op senior staff also shared updates from their respective areas.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Annual Meeting consisted of only a business session again this year.
