A Board of Trustees, elected by the members, governs LCEC. As members themselves, they work to ensure quality service and reliable electricity at competitive rates for the members. Board members serve the membership as a whole and represent all geographic areas. They make decisions and set policies in the best interest of all members.
At the same time, Trustees must learn and understand industry trends and regulatory requirements. While day-to-day responsibility is entrusted to the leadership team and employees, the Board provides oversight of the overarching business strategy. LCEC Trustees have earned a reputation for championing strong values, dedication to the community, and diverse business experience.
Each year, at least three district seats are up for election. Terms are staggered to ensure continuity. Cape Coral has three seats on the ten-person board and the Trustee At Large is also a member residing in Cape Coral.
