Member Advisory Committee

Started over 50 years ago, our Member Advisory Committees have served Blue Ridge Energy members by being a voice for the community. These committees meet on a regular basis, hearing insights about Blue Ridge Energy operations and offering perspectives on how our members can best be served. 

How are MAC members selected?

Four district Member Advisory Committees (MAC) are made up of at least 14 members of the cooperative appointed by the Board of Directors. These committees meet regularly and serve as a sounding board for the cooperative. They also provide input on programs and services.

Members serve three-year terms and are eligible for an additional three-year term. Each fall, a selection committee makes recommendations to the Board for new MAC members to fill any vacancies.
