About the Member Advisory Committee

IMG 0884 WEBHave you ever wondered:

  • Why is electricity so expensive?
  • If we have the most powerful battery back up system, why does the power still go out?
  • Who decides which directors are on our ballots each year?
  • What's GVEA's perspective on hydropower?

Participating on the MAC is an opportunity to find out more about your electric co-op and to provide valuable feedback.

The MAC is made up of three members from each of GVEA's seven geographic districts. MAC members serve on co-op committees such as district nominating committees, the annual meeting committee, bylaw review committee and the election committee.

MAC members meet monthly and serve three-year terms. They receive $45 per meeting and $0.56 per mile for travel.

All GVEA members (except employees) are eligible to volunteer.
