Two of Central’s leadership, district one trustee Gary McCune and district seven trustee Bill Davis, have announced their retirement in October following the end of their terms.
“With more than 30 years of combined experience on the board of trustees, Central has been fortunate to have two amazing leaders with great knowledge and understanding,” said Hunter Robinson, Central’s CEO. “I have no doubt they will continue to be advocates for the cooperative and local communities.”
A Central member for 45 years, McCune has served as a trustee for 19 years. He also served as board president for four years.
McCune served as the first chairman of Central’s Community Foundation Board. He also served as the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperative’s board president and was an initial director on the advisory board for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
Davis, a retired educator at Stroud Public Schools, has served on Central’s board since 2011 and previously served as board president for two years. He has been a Central member for 44 years.
Davis and McCune have both served as board members of Central’s Community Foundation and have received their Credentialed Cooperative Director, Board Leadership Certificate and Director Gold Credential from NRECA.
Both district trustee seats will be filled in accordance with the bylaws at district meetings in August. Members should watch their mail for additional information.
