Delta-Montrose Electric Association's (DMEA) Operation Round Up Charitable Trust is seeking to fill two upcoming vacancies for the District #3 and North Region trustee positions. Trustees serve three-year terms and are limited to a total of four terms. They are responsible for distributing donations from the funds collected through DMEA's Operation Round Up program.
Operation Round Up is a charitable giving program funded directly by DMEA members. Participating members choose to round up their monthly electric bill. The rounded up portions from all participating member bills are deposited into a separate account and are used to grant donations to worthwhile organizations, projects, charities and individuals.
Trustees are responsible for reviewing applications and granting donations on behalf of the cooperative. The trust is made up of nine volunteers who represent different geographic regions within DMEA's service territory. DMEA is currently accepting nominations to fill two vacancies that will be available in the spring. Interested members must be residents of District #3 or the North Region. To submit your name for consideration, contact Becky Mashburn, DMEA marketing and PR administrator at email@example.com or 240-1263.
District #3 includes Somerset, Crawford, Paonia, Hotchkiss and the rural surrounding areas. The North Region includes the northern half of the co-op's service territory from approximately halfway between Olathe and Delta to the northern boundary. To confirm in which district you reside, contact DMEA at 1-877-687-3632.
