NEC District 7 Director, Juan Alvarado, retired from the NEC Board of Directors in late 2023. "Nueces Electric Cooperative members and the electric cooperative community benefitted from his 19 years of generous, knowledgeable and dedicated service to NEC," stated the resolution adopted in honor of Mr. Alvarado by the NEC Board of Directors.
Mr. Juan "Johnny" Alvarado, retired District 7 Director
Mr. Alvarado, a devoted NEC member, prioritized member service, supported Cooperative members and staff, and obtained certificates from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).
He selflessly served in roles as Chair of the Annual Meeting Committee and on committees like Director Screening and Finance. He believed in understanding and executing directional responsibilities with common sense and good judgement. NEC will miss him, and his friends wish him health and happiness in retirement.
Following Mr. Alvarado's resignation, the NEC Board of Directors reviewed district boundaries to assess the most efficient way to best serve the members. Following careful consideration, the Board decided to merge the previous District 7 members into the adjacent District 3.
