After serving 13 terms, totaling 39 years, District 1 Director representative, Virgil “Bill” Moore announced his retirement effective January 2021.
Over the past 39 years as a Director for CVEC, Moore served nine years on the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives Board, represented CVEC on the Southern Iowa Services, LLC Board and the State Government Relations Committee. Moore also served as board president and board secretary for CVEC in previous years.
When asked to reflect on his 39 years of service to CVEC and the membership, Bill stated, “I thoroughly enjoyed serving the membership and ensuring that CVEC continued to provide reliable service at a reasonable rate.”
“We have very big shoes to fill,” Board President Kenny VandenBerg commented. “The cooperative and the membership have been very fortunate to have a director like Bill who always put the members first. He held a wealth of knowledge pertaining to the cooperative’s general practices, Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws and historical facts. I, as well as the rest of the board, were privileged to serve with Bill and hope to continue to use some of the wisdom he bestowed on us.”
