August 26, 2021 (SAN ANTONIO) – The deadline to apply for the CPS Energy Board of Trustees vacancy is quickly approaching. Applications will be received until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. Interested, prospective candidates can access the application and criteria for eligibility here.
CPS Energy held a virtual and in-person information session on Wednesday, August 18, 2021 for prospective candidates. Anyone who missed the meeting can view the presentation or watch the session on the CPS Energy website.
In the search for a new Trustee, the person will be selected from Quadrant 1, which encompasses the northwest part of the energy company’s service area. See the blue highlighted area on the map. Trustee Edward Kelley currently serves on the Board from Quadrant 1. His final term as a Trustee will end on January 31, 2022.
Each of the four Trustees can serve two five-year terms. The board’s fifth member is the Mayor of San Antonio, who serves as an ex-officio member. This is important, as the City of San Antonio owns CPS Energy.
Included in Quadrant 1’s geographic area are San Antonio City Council Districts 7 and 8 and portions of Districts 1, 6, and 9. Residents can find out which CPS Energy quadrant they reside in by entering their address on CPS Energy’s website.
Members of the Board must be United States citizens. Except for the Mayor, each Trustee receives annual compensation of $2,000. Regular meetings are typically held on the last Monday of each month at 1 p.m. in the company’s Board Room at its headquarters.
Additional time requirements for the Trustees include special board meetings, quarterly committee meetings, and, as needed, group and individual work sessions along with public input sessions and various other events.
Qualified and interested candidates are encouraged to apply today. The application for this Board position can be accessed online at www.cpsenergy.com/trustees or obtained at the CPS Energy Headquarters, 500 McCullough. For more information, call (210) 353-3212 or email [email protected].
