Oct. 5 at the Annual Meeting of the Montana Electric Cooperatives, representing Flathead Electric Coop, Alan Ruby was elected as the new statewide president.  The previous president retired after 10 years which left an open seat for the members to choose new leadership and Alan was successful in this effort.  This will involve more travel as he represents 24 Montana cooperatives in our own state legislature, the western U.S. and in DC at our Legislative Conference.  Alan is excited and eager to offer his best efforts on behalf of all the members.
