GVEA Board Seeks Candidates to Fill District 7 Vacancy

Following the resignation of Bill Nordmark, Golden Valley Electric Association’s (GVEA) Board of Directors will be filling the vacant District 7 board seat. The process begins with the recruitment of interested members whose membership account is in District 7.

District 7 runs along the Parks Highway from mile 330, near Skinny’s Halfway Inn, to mile 210 at Cantwell. A map of District 7 is available on the GVEA website, at this link.

GVEA’s service area is divided into seven geographic districts, with one director elected from each district. Members elect directors to three-year terms. Elections take place annually between May and June with no more than three directors elected in any year.

“Members in Districts 4 and 7 will vote for their respective board representative next spring, but seating of those directors will not take place until late June,” explained GVEA Board Chair Tom DeLong. “That is too long to go without representation for District 7. Following GVEA Bylaws, the board will recruit and then appoint a new District 7 director this fall to complete the remainder of Nordmark’s term.”

“Directors are responsible for representing our member-owners as they manage GVEA. This is a multimillion dollar business with assets of nearly $745 million and an annual operating revenue exceeding $240 million,” said DeLong. “Serving on GVEA’s board is a commitment to your community. A dedicated director can expect to spend the equivalent of at least 40 days a year on GVEA business.”

Nordmark resigned in July after serving District 7 for 25 years. His last meeting will be Aug. 24.

Members of District 7 who are interested in applying should contact Susan Redlin at (907) 458-5721 or SKRedlin@gvea.com for an application packet.

GVEA Board Member Bill Nordmark Resigns After 25 Years of Service

“Bill Nordmark’s service and dedication over 25 years is deeply appreciated,” said GVEA Board Chair Tom DeLong. “Bill has been a supporter and proponent of ground-breaking projects and has served the membership well. His commitment to Interior Alaska runs deep.”

Nordmark also served in the U.S. Air Force and was one of the original founders of the Tri-Valley Volunteer Fire Department, where he was chief and an EMT for 19 years. Nordmark lives in Healy where he owned and operated Motel Nord Haven for many years.

In 2017, Nordmark was honored with the Alaska Power Association’s Mason Lazelle Award, the highest honor awarded by the organization. During his 25 years with GVEA, Nordmark was elected chair of the board for 10 years. He currently serves as the board secretary. In addition, Nordmark has served on a number of statewide and national organizations and boards, including the Alaska Power Association, the ARECA Insurance Exchange Board of Trustees and the Northwest Public Power Association’s Board of Trustees.

GVEA’s Board of Directors will be accepting applications from District 7 members who are interested in serving the remainder of Nordmark’s term. The District 7 seat will be up for election in the spring of 2021 and runs along the Parks Highway from mile 330, near Skinny’s Halfway Inn, to mile 210 at Cantwell.
