MAC Meetings

MAC meetings are typically held the second Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at GVEA’s headquarters on Illinois Street. All members are welcome to attend.

  • Note:  If the temperature at 9am on the morning of a MAC meeting is -40 degrees or colder at the Fairbanks International Airport (458-3745 ext. 1113), the meeting will be cancelled.

By serving on the Member Advisory Committee, you’ll learn:

  • Why electricity is so expensive in Interior Alaska.
  • Where our power comes from.
  • What “cooperative” means.
  • What goes into coordinating GVEA’s Annual Members’ Meeting.

Member Advisory CommitteeIf these topics interest you, then you should consider joining GVEA’s Member Advisory Committee (MAC). Serving on the MAC is a great way to get involved, find out more about your co-op and provide valuable feedback.

The MAC is made up of three members from each of GVEA’s seven geographic districts, and they:

  • Serve three-year terms (beginning in September)
  • Meet monthly (typically on the second Wednesday of each month), with each meeting lasting about 90 minutes
  • Receive $60 per meeting, plus standard mileage rates for roundtrip travel

MAC members are also asked to serve on various committees (e.g. district nominating, annual meeting, bylaw review and election).

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