Board Director Resigns

Illinois Electric Cooperative Director Jennifer Sellars has resigned from the co-op’s board of directors. 

 The board accepted Sellars’ resignation letter at the March board meeting. Sellars, who represented District 6 on the 11-member board of directors, joined the board in June 2016.

"It has been my pleasure to serve on the board as I have truly enjoyed working with both the board and the staff. I am sure that the goals that have been set for the co-op will easily be attained by the dedicated and talented staff members and the members of the board. My time on the board has taught me more than I could have hoped. I appreciate the opportunity to gain insight into the industry and for the guidance that has allowed me to become a stronger leader,” Sellars said.

“That being said, I found my resignation necessary to allow me to focus on other areas of my career. I look forward to being a part of the continued success of the co-op in the years to come as both a community member and as a service member."
