CCEC, ORU accepting director applications

Operation Round Up

Operation Round Up, the CCEC program that rounds up members’ bills to the nearest dollar, has openings for directorship positions. This board meets quarterly at the CCEC headquarters in Fargo and determines where and how ORU funds are allocated to local nonprofits. Interested applicants can download the director application online at, complete and email it to Linda Otterson, by Monday, December 11, 2017. Candidates are currently being sought for Districts 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 (see district map at the bottom of this page). Directors are members who must reside within physical districts which are representative of CCEC’s service territory.


CCEC is governed by a nine-member board of directors who are elected to three-year terms at the co-op’s annual meeting in April. This elected board governs the direction of the cooperative and meets monthly.

If you are a Cass County Electric member and are interested in becoming a Director, contact Karen Egeberg at (701) 356-4405 for a 2018 director election petition packet. In compliance with Bylaw requirements, a petition, biographical information and such other information as the board or credentialing committee may require to establish and verify the qualifications of the proposed director to serve must be delivered to the Cooperative office no less than (90) days (by January 31, 2018) prior to the date of the Annual Member Meeting at which an election will be held:

Fargo Directors are elected by ballot for a three-year term. Nominees in Districts 2, 3 and 5-1 must be a bona fide resident of the director district in which they are seeking directorship (see district map at the bottom of this page) (Director 9 is an at large position).

The names of all candidates who submit the required information in the time and manner specified in Article III.
