Board Election 2022

Updated 4/29/22

Candidates running for three seats on SVEC’s board of directors are set for when the election kicks off in July.

In Frederick County, incumbent Todd Van Horn is unopposed for re-election to a three-year term. In Page County, incumbent Brian K. Plum seeks another three-year term and is also unopposed.

Meanwhile, in the Southern region, it’s incumbent Brent Arbogast running for a four-year term alongside Eric Beck and Charlie King. The region is defined as Augusta, Greene, Highland or Rockingham counties, the city of Staunton, or any county bordering Augusta County.

All SVEC members will vote for all three offices. While directors are elected from specific areas, they represent the interests of all co-op members when setting policies and overseeing co-op finances.

Starting with the 2022 election, the board will enter a transition period with the goal of having a nine-member panel. Each board seat will run three years and three offices will be up for election each year, once the transition period is over. In the interim, that’s why some directors will serve four years instead of three.

The board currently has 10 directors, all serving four-year terms.
