Have you ever considered running for the Blachly-Lane Board of Directors?
If you care deeply about our Co-op, would like to represent your district in the overseeing and decision-making process and the ongoing conversation about the direction of our Co-op, and can attend monthly meetings as well as spend some time preparing for these meetings, you should consider running. See Blachly-Lane Electric: Member Owned, Member Run to learn more.
Maybe you're not sure you want to be a director, but you still want to be involved? Then you might consider the Blachly-Lane Aware Committee. The Aware Committee is to help members engage and stand for the cause of rural electrification. Our founders knew that they wouldn’t have electric service if they didn’t start it themselves. The same is true today — without engaged and unified member-owners, the electrification of our rural area is at risk.

You can't fit meetings into your busy schedule, but you would still like to support Blachly-Lane and other rural co-ops?
Then you may be interested in Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Action. For more than 8 decades, Oregon's rural electric cooperatives have delivered clean,
renewable, reliable and affordable electricity to their members. It is a record of which we are extremely proud. Yet, each legislative session, Oregon cooperatives are subjected to mandates or other proposals that challenge our ability to deliver the electricity you need – when you need it – at a price you can afford. Cooperatives across Oregon are encouraging their members to come together to promote common sense solutions by way of our grassroots program; Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Action. Join thousands of other Oregon electric cooperative members who are already part of this vital program.
