Know Your Directors—
What makes SLECA different from other electric utilities in South Louisiana is a board of directors elected by you, the member-owners. The directors are themselves SLECA members and are local residents. It is member ownership and member representation on the board of directors that makes SLECA such a people-oriented business.
