Board Members

The Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC) Board is key to running the organization. The Board consists of one director and alternate from each of DEMEC’s eight (8) full-requirements member communities, and a representative and alternate from DEMEC’s associate member. The local city/town council or board for each community appoints who will serve.

The DEMEC Board meets monthly at the administrative office in Smyrna, Delaware. These meetings provide DEMEC with direction on strategic initiatives regarding power supply, advocacy and education, outreach, and member collaboration.

Officers include:

  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

The President and CEO of DEMEC is an ex-officio member of the Board. Under the guidance and direction of the President and CEO, DEMEC staff provides expert, technical assistance to address the electric service needs of its member communities. Through DEMEC and the power of joint action, each community is able to provide low-cost, highly reliable electric service to its residents.
