Supply, N.C., May 30, 2019 - Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation (BEMC) recently completed the realignment of its board of director districts, reducing the number from thirteen to eleven.
The change moves BEMC’s number of board members in line with the average for electric cooperatives in the state and follows industry best practices concerning governance.
The directors acted on an opportunity provided by the retirement of two of their colleagues to reduce the size of the board. The vacated districts, one in Columbus County and one in Brunswick County, have been consolidated into adjacent districts. The new board makeup will consist of six directors from Brunswick County and five from Columbus County. The new districts map is available at bemc.org.
