Board of Trustees

The service area of Butler Rural Electric Cooperative, Inc. is divided into nine districts, each represented by a democratically elected trustee. The nine board members reside in the district he/she represents. Board members are elected by the members of the cooperative for a three-year term. Voting takes place online and by mail before the cooperative's Annual Meeting in April.


2020 Annual Meeting

Our annual meeting on April 30 was cancelled due to the coronavirus, so board of trustee president Tom McQuiston and the cooperative's attorney Thomas Humbach filmed this video to update members on how we are responding to the virus and to announce the board of trustee election results.

Special meeting video- April 30, 2020


During the video, the results of the 2020 board of trustee elections are announced. Bill credit winners named in the video were randomly selected from the entire cooperative membership. All winners will be notified by mail.
