January 25, 2013


Washington Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors and General Manager Avram Patt wish to let our members, friends, colleagues and the public know that Avram will be retiring on June 30th after serving for 16 ½ years in that position.

“ WEC has been fortunate to have benefited for many years from Avram’s leadership and his unwavering commitment to our co-op and its staff and members, and to the cooperative approach for promoting socially and environmentally responsible business practices,” said WEC Board President Barry Bernstein.

“I will have some reflections to share about the Co-op and our energy future a little later on,” Patt said. “We are announcing this now so the board can begin the search for a new manager and the Co-op can start planning for the change.”

Patt will remain available to assist the new manager and staff with transition and to finish work on any regulatory matters pending on his retirement date.
