Ury elected chairman

The Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives’ (AIEC) board of directors held a reorganizational meeting on July 29, directly following the AIEC’s annual meeting, and unanimously elected Scott Ury as its new board chairman.

Ury is the secretary-treasurer on the board of directors for Southern Illinois Electric Cooperative (SIEC), Dongola, and serves as the SIEC representative on the AIEC board. Ury was elected to represent Union County in August 1999 to fill the unexpired two-year term of his late father, Bob Ury. 

He is a lifetime resident of Union County where he owns a livestock farm. He retired as an electrician from Choate Mental Health Center.

Kevin Brannan was the AIEC board chairman from 2020-2022 and serves as secretary for Illinois Electric Cooperative, Winchester. During the meeting, Ury (left) presented Brannan with a framed image of the capitol as appreciation for his service as board chairman.
