An 11-member Board of Directors is responsible for establishing policy and overseeing the finances and administration of Snapping Shoals Electric Membership Corporation. The Board hires the CEO/President, who is responsible for administering Board Policies and overseeing the day-to-day operation of Snapping Shoals EMC. Because the Directors are also Snapping Shoals members, they have a strong desire to keep the quality of service high and electric rates low. Each year at the Annual Meeting of the Members, which is usually held in July, the members elect Directors and participate in other cooperative business. The Directors serve by district to ensure representation from the different parts of the co-op's service area, but they are elected by the membership at-large and represent all Snapping Shoals members.
