It’s that time of year again; Clark County REMC is gearing up for the 2017 annual meeting, which will be held on Saturday, April 8, at Silver Creek High School. Clark County REMC employees work hard to host this fun event, and I encourage you to attend and exercise some of the many rights you have as a member of an electric cooperative. We know the food, giveaways and prizes are the best parts of the meeting, but there is so much more to the event.
One of the greatest benefits of being an electric co-op member is voting for the upcoming year’s board of directors. Your electric cooperative is not owned by far-away investors, and it is not run by an appointed board of directors. Your electric cooperative is run by a democratically elected board that is given the privilege to serve because of your vote. So, at this year’s annual meeting, not only will you have a blast (and maybe win a prize!), but you will feel good knowing that you had a voice in a very important decision that impacts one of our most vital resources, electricity.
Every member who registers to vote will receive a $10 bill credit and a 30 oz. tumbler cup. Plus, you’ll be entered to win our grand prize – a 50 gallon hybrid State water heater from Eckart, LLC valued at $1,500. Don’t miss out on the chance to vote for your board member as well as these great incentives!
From all of your friends at Clark County REMC, we hope to see you on April 8 at the annual meeting.
DAVID A. VINCE is general manager at Clark County REMC.
