Every year, the cooperative conducts an Annual Meeting of the membership. The purpose of the meeting is to elect directors, share previous years’ financial results, and provide an overall cooperative update.

The 2024 Southern Indiana Power Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. at Tell City Jr./Sr. High School’s auditorium.

Southern Indiana Power’s Annual Meeting has traditionally been a place for old friends to gather and new friendships to form. We also talk about the cooperative’s future. Like other industries, your cooperative is evolving to meet the membership’s needs. That is why we will continue to offer a mail-in registration to allow better access to all members. We encourage all members to register for the Annual Meeting and vote for your board of directors by utilizing our mail-in registration/ballot option. We will record the meeting and post a video on the cooperative’s website to be viewed anytime by our membership.

This month, members will receive the mail-in registration/ballot materials with complete instructions to register for the annual meeting. Simply place your completed registration/ballot in the enclosed envelope, which will be returned to a secure mailing address. Members can also bring the information to the office and place it in our locked ballot box before noon on April 16. The registrations/ballots will be scanned in and counted under the supervision of Southern Indiana Power’s legal counsel. However, if you would rather bring your registration to the Annual Meeting and register/vote that night, please feel free to do so. We want to give members several options so you can choose what is most convenient for you.

All members who return their registration/ballot will be entered to win one of 25 cash prizes totaling $3,000. Prize drawings will be conducted at the cooperative office on Wednesday, April 17. Winners will be randomly selected by a computer drawing and contacted as soon as possible. Winners will also be posted on the website.

Director election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting and listed on our website and Facebook page as soon as the next business day.

Don’t worry if you can’t attend this year’s meeting. The 2023 cooperative financials and my annual CEO report will be available for your review in the June issue of the magazine and on our website.

I look forward to this event every year and the opportunity to provide you with an update on your cooperative.
