SHERIDAN — A vacancy on the Powder River Energy board of directors has occurred with the resignation of Sheridan County director Wade Larsen. The term expires in August 2020, and the PRECorp board of directors is seeking letters of interest from Sheridan County members who would be willing to fill out that term.
Larsen served one term on the board and was re-elected to another three-year term at the August 2017 annual meeting. He resigned in September citing a conflict of interest.
The board will review letters of interest and conduct interviews at a special meeting Dec. 18 in Sheridan. This seat will be filled at the regular meeting Dec. 19, and the three-year term is up for election at the 2020 annual meeting of the members.
In order to qualify for the board, applicants must:

• be a member receiving electric energy from PRECorp.
• not be in any way employed by or have a substantial financial interest in a competing enterprise or a business selling electric energy or supplies to PRECorp.
The deadline for submitting a letter of interest is 5 p.m. Dec. 1. The letter should include the individual’s member number, physical address of his or her primary residence, phone number, email address and a statement indicating qualifications and interest in serving with the PRECorp board.
