Due to ongoing restrictions on large gatherings, the 2021 In-Person Heartland REMC Annual Member Meeting has been canceled. The meeting, originally scheduled for June 26, each year draws an average of 4,000 people. To keep the members and employees safe and to comply with current restrictions, the Heartland REMC board of directors decided to cancel the in-person meeting.
In accordance with the Heartland REMC bylaws, an election for directors will still take place. To meet this requirement, Heartland REMC has set up voting in the offices. Members can come in, register, and cast their ballot in the election. Each member who registers will receive a $15 bill credit on their July billing. Voting will be available, in the lobbies, during business hours from May 10 to June 24. The results of the election will be available on our website, www. heartlandremc.com, on June 28.
Heartland REMC wants to continue to support our local students through our yearly scholarship program. Each year at the annual meeting, 20 full-time college students are awarded $500 scholarships. This is a highly anticipated part of our annual meeting and we are proud to support our local student community. This year, we will be doing a Facebook Live event to draw the 20 winners. The date of the drawing will be announced in the June newsletter. Make sure to “Like” Heartland REMC on Facebook to watch the drawing!
Heartland REMC will continue to do everything we can to keep our members and employees safe while still providing reliable electricity.
