After 25 years of service to Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA) members, District 7 Director Bill Nordmark is resigning. Nordmark joined the GVEA Board of Directors in 1995 and represents members in District 7.
“Bill Nordmark’s service and dedication over 25 years is deeply appreciated,” said GVEA Board Chair Tom DeLong. “Bill has been a supporter and proponent of ground-breaking projects and has served the membership well. His commitment to Interior Alaska runs deep.”
Nordmark also served in the U.S. Air Force and was one of the original founders of the Tri-Valley Volunteer Fire Department, where he was chief and an EMT for 19 years. Nordmark lives in Healy where he owned and operated Motel Nord Haven for many years.
In 2017, Nordmark was honored with the Alaska Power Association’s Mason Lazelle Award, the highest honor awarded by the organization. During his 25 years with GVEA, Nordmark was elected chair of the board for 10 years. He currently serves as the board secretary. In addition, Nordmark has served on a number of statewide and national organizations and boards, including the Alaska Power Association, the ARECA Insurance Exchange Board of Trustees and the Northwest Public Power Association’s Board of Trustees.
GVEA’s Board of Directors will be accepting applications from District 7 members who are interested in serving the remainder of Nordmark’s term. The District 7 seat will be up for election in the spring of 2021 and runs along the Parks Highway from mile 330, near Skinny’s Halfway Inn, to mile 210 at Cantwell.
