Part of the cooperative business model is democratic control. Triangle’s Board of Trustees is made up of Triangle members who dedicate their time to serve on the governing board. They represent the members from different districts in our service area and make decisions to lead Triangle into the future. You are encouraged to share your comments and concerns with them, as well as Triangle's management team.
Being a cooperative, our members are the owners. The members, through their elected Board of Directors, ensure they are receiving the absolute best value for their membership.
The Board of Directors’ key purpose is to ensure the company’s prosperity by collectively overseeing the company’s affairs, while meeting the appropriate interests of the membership. The Board of Directors must deal with the challenges and issues relating to the continual change of regulations. Board members are required to attend continuing education seminars and are expected to attend regional and national meetings to keep informed on the industry.
Director Board meetings may be conducted monthly and additional quarterly joint board meetings with Triangle Communications Board of Trustee are also held. In fact, board members spend approximately 40 days a year conducting board duties.
The key tasks that the board focuses on are:
Establish Vision, Mission and Values
Set Strategy and Policy
Ensure a financially healthy organization
Delegate Authority to Management
