Annual Meeting

Chugach will host its Annual Meeting of the membership on May 18, 2017 at the Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Three candidates are running to fill the two available positions on the Board of Directors. Election results will be announced at the meeting.

Chugach is a utility organized as a member-owned cooperative. The organization is governed by a seven-member board elected by and from the membership. The candidates in the 2017 election are Harry Crawford, Stuart Parks, and Ron Stafford. 


Crawford is a former Alaska State Legislator, retired iron worker and a small-real estate developer. Parks is Vice President, Director of Business Development and Strategy at NANA WorleyParsons, LLC. Stafford is a self-employed consultant.

The board set April 5 as the date of record for this year's election. You must have been a member by then to be eligible to vote.

Chugach has moved to a paperless election for 2017 and will not be mailing paper election packets to all members. Members will receive a postcard in the mail notifying them of the 2017 Annual Meeting and Election. Members with an email in our system will receive an email on April 17 which will include a link to the election materials and instructions for voting. You may also vote here. Paper ballots and election materials will be available upon request.

In order to be ready to vote in this year's election, Chugach needs your email address. Call us at 563-7366 or click here to update your account information.

Another change this year is entertainment. Hobo Jim will be performing from 5:30-6:30 pm. There will also be several educational and energy efficiency booths.
