The Board is made up of six elected Trustees who all come from different backgrounds. Each Trustee brings experience, knowledge and a different perspective to the decisions of the Trust. What they have in common is a commitment to make sure TECT’s decisions are in the best interests of its Consumers, now and in the future.
